    I set up a social media presence for organizations, and keep it current and growing. I know how to create an editorial calendar and will work with you to make sure we're using the messaging that best promotes your brand.

    Get a Job or Find a Path
    I have read hundreds of resumes and graduate-school applications, and I know what works. I can help you prepare for an interview, tailor your resume, or pump up your cover letter. But I'm also an interested and helpful career counselor. Need to find out your true life's passion? I'll work with you to determine some viable paths towards your goal.

    Get fans by being useful
    Web content should have content. Newsletters should have news. Don't use corporate-speak or institutional mumbo-jumbo. Writing clearly and simply is a passion of mine, and I want to work on your communications to make them as useful, inviting, and helpful as possible.

About me

I am a writer and marketer who helps organizations reach their audiences.

I can help your organization develop and implement an online or in-person communication plan.

This might include developing a website, creating an online social presence, or putting together print collateral. I have initiated and coordinated meetings and events for 20-150 people. I can use InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop to design programs, marketing brochures, and posters.  I know how to write marketing newsletters, e-mails, and press releases. I've developed and led workshops and trainings on career development, applying to graduate school, and writing a resume or cover letter.

I'm a member of the Nonprofit Technology Network and the Public Relations Society of America.
