Compelling stories can change lives. I witnessed it during my 10 years in nonprofit communications, and I see it now as I help small and mid-sized businesses truly connect with their customers.
Power comes from nuance. I notice subtle things my clients communicate with an eye twitch or a slight change in their voice. It helps me infuse my clients’ values and personality into their writing.
I’m an analytical creative. A thinker and feeler. My brain never shuts off.
