phenomenal writer!

Hello! I am a communications professional living in the Midwest. Looking for the next career opportunity. I write, therefore I am.

I am passionate in my belief that the quality of communication is a cornerstone upon which organizations thrive or perish.

Throughout my career, I have been privileged to be associated with organizations that are mission- and purpose-driven, embrace a strong set of core values, and affect the quality of life in the communities they serve.

My role in these organizations has been to enhance their ability to communicate effectively with internal and external stakeholders. I have had the opportunity to wear many different hats along the way.

Presently, I am seeking a full-time marketing communications or training-oriented position in an organization in which I will become a valued contributor on a collaborative team. Ideally, this position will involve writing and presentations targeted to a wide range of readers and audiences.

I would welcome an opportunity to discuss your communications needs. Freelance and contract opportunities for writing, training, and project management are also welcome. As a former broadcaster, I always jump at a chance to sit behind a microphone as well!

Marketing — brochures, sales copy, web themes, tag lines
