I capped my English degree with an MBA and spent a brief, early stint in financial services. Then followed roles in sales, marketing communications and marketing management – but no matter where I was, I felt the tug of the written word. I wanted to say it better, make the words work harder. Do more to raise the brand and set it apart.
Stepping aside from management invited a moment of clarity: I would much rather contribute directly, as a writer. Since then I’ve written newsletters, e-newsletters, ad copy, sales collateral, magazine content, appeal letters, event promotions, fundraising packages and more.
A Colorado resident, I draw constant inspiration from the ever-changing vistas of Pikes Peak, and count our 300+ days of sunshine as a lifeline. Family and four felines provide a measure of healthy distraction, and when the work is done, you’ll find me on the tennis court, on the trail … or pursuing perfection in the kitchen.
