A skilled and experienced copywriter, I help small and medium business owners, professionals and academics save time and money, eliminate stress and achieve your objectives. I do this by clearly understanding the purpose of your writing and the intended audience to ensure I suggest language that is on point, easy to read and effective in your context.
When you engage me, you can expect to work with a friendly, expert and responsive professional who will treat your work as if it was my own. In the end your writing will be accurate, clear and engaging. And still feel like your own.
I have a natural capacity for language and linguistics and a genuine love of words. My professional background includes leadership roles in software development, online language learning, instructional design and education, and teaching positions at schools and universities.
Extensive hands-on experience as a writer, editor, proofreader, teacher and researcher, and my work with print and online media in academic, business and community contexts, have earned me respect and an enviable reputation both professionally and personally.
I work with words, all kinds of words: blogs; online courses; training materials; lead magnets; website copy; grant, award and scholarship applications; e-books; project documents; professional profiles; content marketing; website copy; academic papers & referencing; reports; book manuscripts; user guides; e-newsletters; social media; training materials; and more.
I was born in England, grew up in Singapore and have lived in Australia for over 25 years. My interests include health and wellness, permaculture, travel, reading, conservation, community-based sustainability projects and stepping lightly. Along with good coffee, I enjoy blues music, red wine and green politics. And time with Gypsy, my black lab. My friends describe me as ‘intelligent’, ‘incredibly talented’ and ‘always smiling’.
