Profile

I believe in the power of a clear, well-told story to move people and encourage them to act. I specialize in helping clients tell those stories. 

I have 30 years of journalism and communications experience in print, online, video and social media. I help you create meaningful communications and content strategies, and I also do the work - research, write, re-write, edit and proofread website content, blogs, newsletters, annual reports, grant proposals, funder reports, video scripts, social media, and other strategic communications. I anticipate your readers' questions and I structure your content to make it visually interesting and easy to follow.

I hold a B.A. Honours in English and Linguistics and a B. Journalism. I've taken a year long public policy course and I participate in ongoing professional development.
