Business Communications

I work with businesses to create content that’s clear, effective, and professional. I’ll take your notes, outline, rough draft,  or even just a glimmer of an idea, and turn it into Web content, white papers, journal articles, or speeches that are focused and consistent, with impeccable grammar, spelling, and punctuation to boot.

Why confuse your stakeholders and customers with inconsistent language and dense, wordy prose? Or put them off with embarrassing typos and other errors? You’ve worked so long and hard on your product or service–let me put a fresh, objective eye on the subject. I’ll clear up the cobwebs and help you create communications pieces that work for you–and make you look good.
