Writing and Communications Professional
Web writers wear many hats. We are researchers, style guide experts, interviewers and communicators. We are translators who can sponge information on just about anything (really!), creatively package it up, and deliver to an audience with a pen. Finally, we are artists. We don't just bring the message. We impact. Create connections. Add value. Demand a call-to-action. As a writer, I am passionate both about this process, as well as its results.
My professional experience spans nearly a decade across the platforms of online, print, radio, film and magazine design. I love diversity, both in the projects I work on and people I have the privilege of working with. I believe that positive collaboration is necessary to propel a vision forward in a way that exhibits excellence.
My husband and I recently moved to beautiful British Columbia. When I am not writing, you will find me chasing around our two adorable and lively young boys, volunteering at church or relaxing with a book, cup of coffee in hand.
I love to capture a good story, and love that today's variety in media channels provide many ways to voice it. Below, are a few samples of my work.
