Putting Words to Work for Businesses and Nonprofits


From web content and blogs to newsletter text and marketing copy, it's all about good storytelling. Just how that story is crafted makes a difference in whether or not your readers become customers.

Public Relations

There's more to public relations than sending off a press release. Building relationships with the media, creating a social media strategy, and planning special events can help you connect with new and current clientele.


The right appeal or grant should not only secure needed funding for your nonprofit - it should touch your donors' hearts, encouraging them to become ambassadors for your organization and cause.

Features Writing

Parenting, food, pop culture, technology - and those topics are just the tip of the iceberg. If you're a publication looking for an experienced writer or a business looking for someone to write articles on your behalf, you've come to the right place.

Writing Done Right

Newsletters. Public relations. Social media. Web content.

As a nonprofit or small business, you have dozens of ways to get in front of your audience. The key is to find the best mix of marketing solutions and maintain a consistent message across all media.

As a St. Louis writer and public relations specialist based in Edwardsville, Ill., I’ve put words to work for organizations here in the metropolitan region and across the country. I’ve been on both the client side and agency side and understand the unique challenges you face, especially with tight deadlines and even tighter budgets.

My specialties include:

  • Copywriting
  • Grant writing
  • Fundraising
  • Direct appeals
  • Public relations
  • Social media
  • Website content and search engine optimization
  • Traditional and online marketing
  • Script writing
  • Features writing
  • Blogging

My passion is helping nonprofits expand their reach to both their clientele and their donors. For the past 20 years, I’ve helped organizations build their membership, grow their public relations efforts, and construct powerful marketing campaigns to be able to serve more people in need.

I’ve also written for numerous publications in the St. Louis region, including Sauce Magazine, Missouri Life, STL Parent, and I am East St. Louis.

I would love the chance to help you build your business. Please check out my work samples or contact me for more details.
