For over fifteen years I have been providing superior freelance creative communications services. As a successful editor, writer, website designer, project manager, and team leader, I solve difficult challenges by quickly clarifying my client's most critical needs, discovering any barriers to overcome, and building on what already works well. This enables me to craft quality online content, marketing collateral, websites, social media platforms, informational resources, promotional campaigns, and more.
