Your business has stories to tell.

I'm the person to help you.

Top 3 reasons

I am a copywriter-editor-strategist

Adventure

Every mandate comes with individual challenges and requirements. In a single day, I draw on different skill sets. The variety keeps me sharp and motivates me in my work for clients.

Curiosity

By listening to my clients, I learn a lot about their needs and their businesses. This knowledge helps me ask right questions. I save them time and deliver greater value.

But here is the main reason.

Clients

Most satisfying for me? Being the go-to resource for these busy professionals. They trust me to take on what they need done with ease. Having been in their role, I know what that means.

My work

The Case Studies section features projects from my copywriting and editing portfolio.

Frequently asked questions

Do you charge hourly rates or provide project estimates?

Both. Depending on the project, I usually use an hourly rate for small, straight-forward mandates (under 5 hours) and use a blended rate for projects over 5 hours as these often require a combination of services.

After I contact you, what are the next steps?
  1. The  Contact page includes a form with an area to provide  high-level details on your request.
  2. Once I review your request, I will send you a Project Brief document including the info you sent, along with additional questions for a deeper dive. My response time is between 24 to 48 hours.
  3. The more complete the brief, the quicker the turnaround on my estimate. If something is unclear, I will e-mail you to ensure minimal delay.
  4. Once a client accepts my estimate, I require a 50% deposit be made, with the balance due on project completion.
  5. We then determine a date and time for a ‘project launch’ call.
  6. Next steps depend on the nature of the project.
  7. At project conclusion, I send the clients a short form for feedback and a testimonial.
What if I need other services, like photography or graphic design?

Great question! I maintain a network of professionals with expertise in a wide variety of areas, including:

  • brand and reputation management
  • graphic design
  • photography
  • public relations
  • revision/translation (English<-> French)
  • stakeholder engagement.
