Creativity. Experience. Scope.

How can I help you meet your organization's communications challenges?

My roots are in writing and editing but over the years I've expanded far beyond, managing and producing creative projects such as annual reports, newsletters, white papers, case studies, and magazines. I've also produced high-quality websites, videos, and a wide range of marketing materials. With projects for every size organization, from Fortune 50 corporations to medium-sized businesses to nonprofits, there aren't many communications challenges I haven't taken on.

  • I cut my teeth as a writer for a major daily newspaper, the Philadelphia Inquirer, where I learned from the best-of-the-best editors (including two who have won Pulitzer Prizes).
  • I expanded beyond reporting into communications management while at Cigna Corporation, which had me traveling from coast to coast covering hurricanes and earthquakes and began my fascination with the Internet.
  • As a communications consultant in 1995-2000, I began producing websites, writing business trade magazine articles, and writing copy and managing publications for corporate and nonprofit clients.
  • Then, I jumped back into communications, leading marketing efforts for the nonprofit Haverford School to produce corporate-quality annual reports, videos, and websites. I also supported three fundraising campaigns with publications, promotional materials, websites, and videos.
  • Since 2010, I've been a communications consultant (again). I've enjoyed providing creative project development and management services for a wide variety of clients, including B2B, B2C and internal communications.

Editing

Editing

I’m an editor with more than 25 years of hands-on experience. I don’t trash other people’s writing or voice; I work collaboratively with them to make their writing better. I also work with teams to review and improve larger writing projects.

Since writing and editing are all about understanding the big picture, organizing various categories of content, and paying attention to the details, I also can manage many other kinds of projects, such as videos, websites, social media, photo shoots, marketing campaigns, etc.
