Let's shape your story. 


Making people better

My passion has always been words—writing them, editing them, speaking them, singing them. Over the years I discovered that my favorite way to use words is to make people better.

Not that there's anything wrong with you now. (Well, not much anyway.)

All of us could use a good editor. (Even editors.) A trim here, a tweak there, a fixed wayward comma—now your work is focused and powerful.

Will they understand?

You have something to say, but how will it come across to others?

Crafting clear communication is hard to do alone. You need support to ensure that people accurately comprehend your message. 

Whether I help a nonprofit share their mission, coach an author with that first book idea, create a profile about a dynamic leader, or simply help my daughter have a more meaningful conversation with a friend—my passion is using language to connect people and ideas. 

Where could you use some sharpening?

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
— Proverbs 16:24
I found the phrase to every thought
I ever had, but one;
And that defies me,—as a hand
Did try to chalk the sun
— Emily Dickinson
