Looking back it seems that I was predestined to be a wordsmith since childhood. I wrote plays and insisted that my sister and friends act them out.  I copied articles from our set of encyclopedias (practicing handwriting, story development, and research). And for my capstone project in fourth semester high school Latin, I wrote a newsletter.

Not counting those early experiences, I now have worked more than 20 years in business and technical communications. My approach to each project is with a passion for producing targeted messaging for organizations that value their people, products, and positioning.

My industry experience includes news reporting, medical, gas pipeline and compressor stations, process safety, oil and gas, and liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Within those industries, my multifaceted experience encompasses the capabilities listed above, as well as managing marketing budgets and collaborating with service providers such as printers, photographers, and mailing houses. I also am very comfortable working with organizations’ branding requirements and various style guides—corporate, Chicago Manual of Style, Society of Petroleum Engineers, Associated Press, American Medical Association, and others.
