Content Strategist, Copywriter, Developmental Editor, Ghostwriter, Graphic Designer, Photographer, Videographer, Writer, Writer Manager

Multi-published award winning author with fifteen years of writing, design, and video production experience

Storytelling is my life – and I’m always working to get to the next level. With over 10 years of professional experience working as a graphic/web designer, photographer, video producer, and writer, I know how to identify and create content that will speak to your audience. I’ve worked for clients and businesses in a variety of fields, including healthcare, recruiting, publishing, and music.

I have over a decade of experience in content strategy/social media management, branding/graphic design, and video production. I’m a natural born storyteller who thrives on the challenge of finding a company’s unique story and capturing their target audience.

My accomplishments for businesses and individual clients include:
• Producing new, innovative marketing videos for DDN Storage, a high tech company, which include motion graphics, on-brand and on-budget, saving the company a significant portion of the budget they use for outside vendors. Videos have increased video shares by 159% and subscribers by 41%.
• Launching a successful video marketing and social media campaign for Las Vegas Recovery Center that increased social media engagement by 70% and resulted in more admits to their program.
• Developing new voices for companies and blog articles that significantly improved conversion rates
• Developing monthly editorial calendars based on statistics and "out of the box" creative thinking
• Significant creative team management and helping creative teams function as a more cohesive and efficient unit.
