Creating conversations that sell.

I'm an experienced, multi-niche freelance writer, and I pride myself on my ability to change my voice and style to match that of each of my clients.

After 16 years in the health and fitness industry, I'm still helping others achieve their goals and dreams, this time with my writing.

With experience as a business owner as well as seven years in the military (as an administrator, no less), you know that I am committed to efficient and high-quality work.

My goal is to help you nurture relationships with current clients, and create great relationships with potential ones.
