I’m a freelance writer based in the Tri-Cities (Johnson City – Bristol – Kingsport) area of Tennessee, specializing in writing marketing materials for all types of businesses as well as writing for the education market.
Like most people who make their living with words, I started writing at a very young age. I wrote my first short story at age six! And, was published by age sixteen.
Since then, I’ve gained experience in teaching, journalism, grant writing, magazine writing, copywriting, proofreading, and editing.
I love writing copy to help businesses sell and promote their cool products and services, increase sales, and bring traffic to their websites. I also enjoy helping those involved in education spread their special message with creative copy.
With over twelve years combined experience in marketing communications and in education, I am uniquely qualified to tell your business or education story.
As a marketing copywriter, I’ve written press releases, web content, product packaging, coupon offers, brochures, billboards, posters, bus sides, sell sheets, publicity packages, radio ads, television ads, product descriptions, B2B, B2C, and internal communications.
As an education writer, I’ve written grants, school board reports, educational newsletters, course catalog descriptions, reading curriculum for ESL, and much more. I’ve even grade-leveled books!
As a ghost writer, I’ve written speeches and articles for civic leaders, teachers, and politicians (sorry about that last one).
You name it and I’ve probably written it!
I have experience working in the following industries:
- Natural Foods
- Television & Radio
Degrees & Interests (in case you’re into that stuff)
I graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in English/Creative Writing; then, studied Elementary Education.
I love science fiction, Star Trek, comic books (don’t judge), and all things tech. When not writing, I enjoy reading, hiking, working out, and exploring new forms of healthy eating.
Not sure if I’m the writer for you? I love writing about new products and services in different industries. Besides, research is my middle name. (Okay, so, it’s really not. ) I enjoy research and can get up to speed fast on your business needs.
