From A to Z (well, the Y, anyway) -- I bring experience

"Lia, this is the first time in my entire career as a high school principal that I've been accurately quoted in the school paper," said Mr. Tam. "This is a great story!"

That was in 1987. I've been writing accurate and engaging stories ever since.

From AOL to the YMCA, I have crafted effective business content in many forms and formats. Print, broadcast, and digital, I've done it all: social media campaigns, blogs, commercials, newsletters, web content, corporate communications pieces, brochures, reports, and much more.

 

From B.A. to M.A. -- I bring education

With a bachelor's in Communications--Radio/TV/Film (now called Digital Media Production and Journalism) and a master's in English, I bring meticulous research skills and compelling storytelling to everything I do. I work until it's A+ quality.

From initial contact to delivery -- I bring effective engagement

I am a "creative type" but I am also thorough; on assignment, I conduct extensive research and multiple interviews to learn as much as I can about a company, its culture, and its people. My goal is to find the human story within the corporate story, the element that engages readers on a basic level and delivers your message effectively.

When not writing, I can usually be found shuttling a kid somewhere, snuggling our Shiloh shepherd, or sneaking off to find a sunny spot to read or dream about my next travel adventure.
