How I Can Help:

Whether you’re a small business, author, musician, public figure, an individual or family, your branding and image matter. Customers, potential employers, potential schools to which you apply and anyone with access to the internet can form an opinion of you before they even meet you. Make sure their perception of you is the one you want them to have.

Whether you’re launching a book release, new music or a new product, launches can be overwhelming. There are many little details that could derail your launch or prevent it from reaching its potential. I can either guide you through the launch journey or take care of the details for you. Let’s make your dream launch come true! ​

Words matter. Words for blog posts, website verbiage, ebooks, guest articles…every word matters. As a writer for over 20 years, I can craft a piece that takes your words and turns them into a well-flowing message that matches your tone and voice. Ghostwriting for books is available, too.

Whether you’re a small business, author, musician or an individual, your online presence is an ideal opportunity to shape your brand, expand the reach of your message, engage with your customers and increase sales.
