I’m a creator and editor who loves to work with people who are passionate about what they do.

As an editor and writer, I pride myself on maintaining my clients’  voices. I’ve worked with people from many walks of life, situations, disabilities, and native languages.

That means I understand the importance of making sure the results reflect the uniqueness of YOU!


Above all, my promise to you is to meet you where you are.

You don’t need to be perfect. You don’t have to know a bunch of technical terms. I’m not going to criticize you and ask why you don’t have more experience.

I promise to work with you at whatever level you’re at, to help you to improve, and to guide you to writing that allows your personality to shine.

The prices below are designed to give you the best value for your money. I try to be flexible for people with small budgets, so let me know, and we can do something that works for you.
