Corporate/Marketing Communications

In my 33 years of marcom/corp com work, I've been responsible for quality-control editing (brand, style, tone, voice, grammar, accuracy, consistency, etc.) for six large companies. My target audience: millions of customers across four states, plus business partners. I interpret complicated features and important topics for commercial and government contracts, making sure content is understandable, accurate, and on brand—all while managing multiple versions of documents and helping the organization meet sales and service goals. I have a sharp memory, an incredible eye for detail, an obsessive love of style guides, and a gift for distilling complicated ideas into simple, reader-friendly copy.

I can bring my skills and experience to your brochures, white papers, annual reports, blogs, newsletters, web copy, letters, and more.


My Niche: Memoir


One of my favorite questions is:


Who will tell your story?

You have a story. And you should control how it's told.

That's why one of my specialties is memoir. Whether your story is exciting, inspiring, funny, or painful, it's worth telling. Tell it to just your family and friends. Or share it with the world. Either way, publishing your story is a gift to both you and your readers.

It's also incredibly healing. When you send your story out into the world, you begin owning the story, and the story stops owning you. In fact, one of my clients told me that when she self-published her memoir, it freed up all that space the story had been occupying in her head, making room for other things.


To hone my memoir skills, I've completed a memoir-writing workshop through Sarah Lawrence College School of Writing.

I also work with a group of local women who are developing their skills as writers and memoirists. I've delved into the most private and personal stories of dozens of people who felt compelled to get their story out there. 

So if you have a story that you want to control, I'd love to hear from you.
