Whether you need something written from scratch, edited for style and substance, or simply proofread for typos & grammar glitches, I can help.
Need communications that look great too? I can provide seamlessly integrated graphic design services to keep your message consistently on point. I handle everything from corporate communications and marketing to resumes, application essays, personal communications and more.
I earned an English degree from Washington and Lee University and studied writing and literature at Exeter College, Oxford and the University of Virginia. In graduate school I taught grammar and language skills to foreign students, published literary reviews, and tutored Division I basketball and football recruits in writing. When I realized that climbing the ladder of academia wasn't going to make me happy, I flipped the script and went to work for an investment firm specializing in mortgage and asset-backed securities. (Weird but true: I like math almost as much as I like words.) I went on to spend six years in the finance world building quantitative financial risk models and providing investment portfolio analytics.
Even when I was crunching numbers, I was always writing. Economic commentary, portfolio performance summaries, and investment research reports replaced literary analysis and review, but I soon found myself with a side gig editing all sorts of communications - corporate and otherwise. Whether it was the CEO's letter to investors or the girl in the next cubicle's law school school application essays, everybody always wanted a little help with their writing.
Twenty some years later, I find that most people still want a little help polishing their communications. These days, that can mean building a website and a social media presence for a small business, launching a major fundraising event or annual fund campaign for a nonprofit, helping an entrepreneur pitch a new business idea, providing coaching and editing services for school application essays, or simply proofreading important documents for busy individuals. If you're looking for a little extra polish in your communications, peruse the FAQs, or get in touch to learn more.
