Award-Winning Journalist & Dedicated Storyteller

From the moment I was old enough to start stringing words into sentences, writing has been my passion and my purpose. My copy is lively, fresh, clean and concise. I can write for a range of purposes and audiences, whether composing pieces that are light and fluffy, or hard-hitting and weighty. Words hold tremendous power to persuade, and I enjoy using my gift for writing to help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams and bring their visions to life. Much of my career experience comes from being a journalist. I've worked on staff as a reporter at two of Canada's most respected newspapers, the Ottawa Citizen and the Winnipeg Free Press. I've also been a reporter and editor at Vancouver's leading business paper, Business in Vancouver, and taken on numerous freelance assignments for various publications, both in Canada and the USA. I'm a dual citizen currently living in New Orleans, a vibrant and colorful city that provides endless inspiration for my writing. I'm a skilled interviewer and researcher, and I know how to employ those skills to gather the relevant information that brings the writing to life, shaping the piece to be sharp and compelling for readers. That's my story. Now I'd love the chance to tell yours. ____________________________________________ Expertise Includes: • newspaper and magazine stories • blog stories • website copy • company profiles • entrepreneur bios • social media prose • brochure and catalog text • press releases • company newsletters • business plan content • annual reports • text for oral presentations (radio stories, speeches for business purposes, speeches for personal uses such as wedding ceremonies and eulogies)

"I have enlisted Carreen's expertise on several projects over the past three decades. She is the finest content and copy editor I have worked with. She reliably makes complex concepts accessible with the written word, drawing out the necessary details in a brief conversation and crafting a message that resonates with its intended audience. She is sensitive to - and diplomatic about - all things socially and politically important. Carreen is current and forward-thinking with trends and topics yet upholds the traditional standards of writing, recalling minutiae details from the most respected style guides in the English language. Not even your grandmother will find errors in her grammatical offerings. "

"Carreen worked for me at BIV Media Group as a reporter covering business issues in Metro Vancouver. She was always professional, on deadline, and had a great sense of where the real story was. She works hard and doesn't stop until she has what's needed. And she is fun to work with. She is smart and a quick learner with a wide range of interests, underpinned by the fascination and curiosity behind all great writers. I confidently recommend her for any writing assignments."
