NONPROFITS & PERSONAL FINANCE?
Yes, you read that right. Do these industries sound like complete opposites? Not to me! I'm really passionate about these two areas for a few reasons. My interest in personal finance was born out of my journey paying off $60K in student loans -- mostly on a nonprofit and higher ed salary. I've learned so much about how to make every dollar count and love sharing what I know with others. I continue to write for nonprofits because they represent causes I care about (education, social justice, diversity and more). It's my way of supporting positive change in the world.
LET'S DO MORE WITH YOUR DIGITAL MARKETING
Whether it's writing blog posts, revamping a website, or creating an email campaign I've done it all for big and small organizations. After working in house for more than 12 years I know how hard it is to get everything done in a day. Especially if you're part of a small (but mighty!) team. Heck, I can't tell you how many times I was a "team" or "department" of one!
I know finding the right outside support can be hard BUT having a reliable, go-to writer skilled in digital marketing is PRICELESS.
That's where I come in.
I have a journalism degree and master's in communication management combined with more than 12 years as a digital marketing professional. My writing and digital marketing projects give your organization a strong, personable, professional voice that connects with visitors while delivering inspiring information that calls people to action. I do my very best to give my clients the expertise they need and the final product they want.
My sweet spot is helping nonprofits and personal finance companies build their online presence — on time and on budget.
HERE'S WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU:
- Deliver polished and professional digital marketing support
- Conversational, thoughtful and easy to understand writing that captures your organization's voice
- Build trust with your audience and position you as an expert
- Create a sense of community by engaging audiences online and keep them coming back
