Your Communications Partner


Selecting the right writer or marketing & communications partner can be a daunting task. You need the talent. You need the resources. You need it done better than the next guy, and you need it done yesterday. I can help.

From writing features and travel stories for magazines and online media outlets to helping non-profits and corporations finely tune their marketing communications strategies and media outreach, my clients appreciate my “it will get done” approach. Never one to miss a deadline or go over budget, I enjoy working alongside my clients to create compelling content that engages their audiences.

In addition to my writing and marketing work, I’m an adjunct professor at Johns Hopkins University. I teach graduate-level communication courses ranging from how to best use social and digital media to changing behavior through communication.

My work ranges from helping national organizations communicate the need for more clean energy options to working with local organizations get the word out about their international refugee programs and sustainability efforts through marketing strategies and public relations.

My current and past clients include the Union of Concerned Scientists, The Morton Arboretum, Heartland Alliance, McCormick Spice, Meredith Corporation, among others.

My byline has appeared in Politico, Rodale's Organic Life, The Atlantic's CityLab, Forbes, Fortune, USA Today, National Geographic's The Plate, CivilEats, Midwest Living, Sierra, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Health, Natural Awakenings and others.

I'm an active member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) and the Association of Women Journalists - Chicago (AWJ). I live in Chicago where I prefer to use public transportation or bike everywhere because it's usually faster and cheaper to get to my destination.
