Sustainable living, health and wellness, and lifestyle writer

Do you need a freelance writer who makes living a sustainable, healthy lifestyle appealing to your readers, and your brand sound like the answer to their prayers? Look no further. I’m the gal for you!

I help my clients position themselves as an authority in the marketplace by providing easy-to-understand, educational content that attracts readers, answers their questions, and meets their needs.

Print publications and businesses in the sustainable and healthy living sector trust me with their voice. Why? Because, I’ve milked the goat, slopped the pigs, and collected eggs with a baby on my hip. I’ve treated that baby’s ear infections with alternative therapies and fed him organic food fresh from our backyard. My clients get a writer who knows how the body works and how to take care of it naturally, or allopathically when necessary. They also know I understand the meaning of a deadline and that my discipline, attention to detail, and research and interviewing skills have put my writing in front of millions of readers.

“Carol pitches great ideas because she bothers to understand our products. She takes direction and assignments very well and delivers completed packages—that require very little editing—on time, every time. ... Carol is also a marvelously low maintenance freelancer—no hand holding required!”—Hank Will, Ogden Publications

“Carol has done a great job as a freelance writer for me at Of the dozens of writers I have worked with over the years, she has been one of the most dependable and thorough. She consistently creates helpful and well-researched content. I highly recommend her.” — Bob Lotich, Natural Health Ezine

“Carol is the definition of professionalism. She is always cheerful and upbeat.”—Matt Gross, Fermentools
