So what’s my story?

I’ve never held one position for very long. And there’s a good reason for that!

When I was a full-time employee, I was consistently promoted to greater responsibilities and to roles that were new to each company.

When I left a position for new opportunities, my employers often sought to continue our working relationship, and I frequently partner with former mentors and colleagues for writing, editing, marketing and social media projects even today.

What does this mean for you? I’m a quick study and a trusted partner who can grow with and help grow your business.

I also don’t sit still very well. In fact, I’m insatiably curious. I’ll love learning about your business!
