Content That Tells Your Story

Before I transferred to Elmhurst College to study writing, I was a geothermal engineering major. However, as I continued through my first semesters of school, I realized my true strength and focus lies in writing, so I channeled my passion for learning in an English degree. Writing allows me to construct stories, organize ideas, and cultivate wonder. I graduated from Elmhurst College in May, 2017, and since then I have cultivated my passion for writing, branding, and independent work. I am an award-winning writer who understands the human condition--what we need, what we strive for, and what impacts us.

My strategy combines emotionally-impactful imagery with tactful word choice in order to draw your clients in to your brand's story. I have a versatile, clear voice and a distinct, adaptable style to suit your needs.

I created a landing page for a client through WiX. She needed someone to articulate her business's brand and put all the information in one place. I was able to streamline everything for her while creating a cohesive experience for her clients.
