Writing & Editorial Services

I partner with nonprofits, publishers, and authors to create content that educates, informs, and transforms lives.


With a master’s degree and 15 years of experience in publishing, I can help execute and develop any project from conception to publication.


Grantwriting is more than storytelling–it requires strategy. Since 2015, I’ve helped nonprofits raise over $3 million in grants from foundations and corporations.


Sharing your story doesn’t have to break the bank. I work with organizations to create cost-effective and impactful communications for print and online.
