Hello, I'm



I’m a writing trainer with years of experience in corporate America, including 18 years at Edelman. I lead workshops for corporate communications teams in many industries. I also produce a wide variety of content, often collaborating with clients as a writing partner or editor.

My mission is

To teach people how to write lively, crisp copy that is easy for readers and listeners to understand and act on, regardless of the topic or its complexity.

Be a POWER Writer® Workshops

Learn how to write with clarity, impact, and confidence in a workshop customized for your organization—or in a more general lunch and learn session. Read more about my approach—POWER: Prepare, Organize, Write, Edit, Review® and how I can put it to work for you.


Other Services


I write all manner of material for companies in various industries. Whatever the piece, it will say what you want it to say, grab your readers’ attention, and produce the desired response.


When you trust me to edit your copy, I will stay true to your voice. I will make your words brighter, your thoughts clearer, and your message stronger.
