Over the past 7 years, I've marketed everything from classical music to small town tourism and locally made granola.

BLOGGING & BUSINESS STORYTELLING

Above all, I am first and foremost a writer and storyteller,  and I consider this my greatest strength in marketing. I’ve interviewed a variety of patrons for articles, blog posts, and fundraising pieces. Due to my lived experience, I have the unique understanding necessary to craft or edit respectful pieces on the topic of disability.

A full overview of my writing life is available on my website or you can request to see marketing-specific pieces via email.
