As a copywriter and brand strategist, I'm here to help your find that message and present in the most impactful way possible. Whether you're finding your footing or pushing your longstanding business to even greater heights, I'm here to help you bring your story to life.

Here's my requisite stick-it-to-the-man story
Not all that long ago, it seemed my career was on its way to corporate ✨goddess-hood✨. I was working at one of the largest ad agencies in the Southwest, cutting my teeth writing for companies like Time Warner Cable and the Gore-Tex Brand. At 23, I took a dream job running marketing for an Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Company.
But despite the increasingly exciting titles, I began to feel like I was on a fast track to somewhere I had no desire to go. The traditional workplace just wasn’t doing it for me. I felt like I was trying to squeeze myself into someone else’s idea of a great life.
So I took stock of my skills, then took the leap. No, I haven’t become a millionaire (yet?), and no, I don’t work from Cancun. But I do get to help creative entrepreneurs grow businesses they’re proud of, and that brings me immense joy. I also get to raid my kitchen for snacks all day, so, you know, #win.
Pretty cool, right? I love working with you guys.
So anyway, it's nice to meet you!
