Profile

As a former executive in the public service, I understand what kinds of information people need to make decisions. I use plain language techniques to make complex ideas understandable, and I excel at drawing out the key messages you want to communicate.

I am a now freelancer with significant experience writing and editing web content, government documents, and environmental reports. My clients include technology companies, government departments, and non-profit organizations. 

Recent client comments:

"I think it's perfect! Thank you for your concise work."

"She loved it! When can we talk about the next piece?"
