Freelance Copywriter and Content Strategist
A VERSATILE WRITER WHO'S EXPERIENCED & DEPENDABLE
Whether it's journalism, content marketing, or social media, I love words, and I love making words work for people and brands.
I've spent the last four years working in content marketing, gaining a variety of experience writing for different audiences and on different topics. Writing online content has given me the chance to focus on SEO and digital marketing; I am practiced at incorporating keywords and crafting effective calls-to-action while maintaining a brand's unique voice.
As a project manager, I gained experience in overseeing an editorial calendar and leading a team of writers – I recruited 90+ freelancers from the home services industry and worked with them from ideation to publication. I also have experience writing social media copy and freelance blogging for ecommerce and lifestyle sites.
I'm passionate about branding and strategy and excited to work with you on whatever your content needs, from website copy to blog posts, editing, SEO, and more. Shoot me a message, and we'll get to work!
