About Me and My Work

What kinds of projects, tasks, or challenges do you typically partner with nonprofits on?
I typically partner with organizations on website content creation and revision, developing communication plans, and copywriting projects. This includes:

Writing and editing web copy, eNewsletters, social media, and blog posts
Creating fundraising communications including annual reports, appeal letters, donor letters, and case statements
Creating annual communication plans and key messaging that maps to strategic goals and priorities
Ghost and speech writing

I will work with you to develop smart strategies to elevate your communications and increase outreach, thereby your improving relationships and building a stronger base of members, donors, and supporters.
Why would someone choose to work with you?
I bring my clients’ values clearly into their voices and develop appealing, engaging, and persuasive content to assist them in telling their stories to engage with their audience and meet their organizational goals.

Do you need part-time comms help? I take on short and longer term contract work.

If you need to write something, but keep putting it off because you aren't confident in your skills or you really just don't want to do it—call me. Do you have a messy piece that needs a whole lot of help? I can't wait to get my hands on it!

With more than 20 years working in and with the nonprofit world, I get your challenges—and have ideas how to meet them. While not a DEI expert, I am committed to applying a DEI lens to all client work.

Also, I am serious about my work and fun to work with.
