About Me


Thanks for stopping by.

When I was growing up, my mother told us, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” As a freelance writer and editor, my goal is to help you say exactly what you want to say with grace, honesty, and authenticity.

If you know what you want to say, but have trouble putting it in writing or finding your voice, I can help. I provide freelance proofreading, copy editing, and copywriting services to individuals and nonprofits.

With more than two decades of experience in various roles in Christian higher education and faith-based nonprofits, I have a depth of experience and expertise to give your publications the polish they need to communicate clearly and effectively.

My professional experience includes stints as a typesetter in a small-town Iowa newspaper (I actually loved the smell of the ink!), a stringer for a regional midwestern paper, and a freelancer for an Orlando-area business magazine. I have edited numerous theological articles and dissertations, and have served as the writing director for a Christian ministry producing small-group study materials. My passion is helping individuals and organizations communicate clearly and effectively. Whether it’s a newsletter or ad copy, a nonfiction manuscript or a thesis, I want to help you “say something nice” and say it well.
