    Work Bio

    PROFESSIONAL ​INFO​​

    I'm an award-winning copywriter with a successful track record of marketing national, international and local brands in all media.

    I quickly discern client needs to deliver compelling copy that exceeds expectations and drives sales. I love what I do, so I tackle every assignment with enthusiasm and a sense of fun. When I'm not on deadline, I'm usually baking, watching movies of the '20s and '30s with my husband, enjoying life on the New Hampshire seacoast and drinking coffee. Lots of coffee.

    Writing is easy: All you do is sit staring at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead.
