As a writer, editor, and marketing communications strategist, my goal is to make complex concepts easy to understand while preserving critical information.
I’m available as a freelancer for writing, editing, and marketing communications projects of all kinds.
What I do
- Tailor technical content to specific audiences at all levels
- Manage marketing campaigns in social media, email, web, and print
- Develop and maintain processes for project management
- Test different communications to find out which is best
I am currently a communications specialist at American Student Assistance and do occasional work as a freelance writer, editor, and marketing communications consultant for Shulman & Hill. I volunteer to help students at West Roxbury Academy and the Urban Science Academy write college essays, and have done volunteer development campaign assistance with the Saving Teens In Crisis Coalition (STICC).
