I've made a life out of collecting experiences, and I draw upon those experiences anytime I help you tell your story. I have a long history (20 years) of academic work and am comfortable working in most disciplines. My literature and writing degrees, in addition to graduate work in education and environmental science, attest to my knowledge. As head of an environmental non-profit and busy freelancer, I pride myself on my organization and attention to detail. I've written for multiple publications and in multiple formats—in addition to a long history of creating and managing online and written content for multiple small businesses—and would like to put those skills to work for you. I also believe very strongly in collaboration to ensure you get the highest quality work. If it's not exactly what you want, then it's not what I want to give you. I'm eager to help you develop your voice and presence, and I look forward to working with you and answering any questions you might have!
