SEO copywriter crafting vibrant and engaging content

I love helping people and organizations realize their potential through visual communication – whether it be corporate communications, social media, or creative marketing solutions. I hold certifications in email marketing, SEO, copywriting and social media marketing. ABOUT ME I graduated from Western Carolina University with both a B.A. and an M.A. in English, with a focus on Professional and Creative Writing. During my studies there, I also minored in art and specialized in graphic design. In 2009, I packed up my life and traversed the country to attend the School of Journalism at the University of Montana, where I pursued a M.A. in photojournalism and honed my photography and design skills. In 2011, after a stint in Mexico, I moved to Bellingham and began work as a copywriter at Faithlife (formerly Logos Bible Software). Soon after I was able to realize my dream of becoming a journalist when I was offered the job of assistant editor at Point Roberts Press. The Northern Light, a weekly community newspaper, gave me the opportunity to really dig into the craft of writing, with topics ranging from the mundane (yet, important) coverage of city council meetings to the recounting of colorful bayside festivals and the struggles and triumphs of the community. Time was well spent at Point Roberts Press, with a promotion to editor after the first year, and a myriad of bylines earned at the Press’ diversified publications. It was a great place to become a jack of all trades, and I was able to win several awards and pick up new skills. However an opportunity to work as a staff photographer at a local daily newspaper materialized, and it was too good to pass up. Joining the photo staff at The Skagit Valley Herald, I broadened my repertoire, building infographics and capturing daily life across the Skagit Valley for its readers to connect with. It was a great gig, and I loved it. But, alas, motherhood and the wild hours of journalism are hard to reconcile, so I turned to freelance. Now, I’m here and ready to help you design your content for social media and the web. I’m looking forward to working with you!
