If you like, you can read my “official” bio over at LinkedIn, but I’m going to guess what you’d really like to know is who I am and what it’s like to work with me.
I am a mom, an avid reader, a someday novelist, a prolific blogger, and a student of the equestrian arts, voice, and (occasionally) trapeze flying. I believe that the minute you stop learning, you die. I’m the kind of person who will risk whiplash to avoid running over a frog. I can be bribed with chocolate. I tend to mix business with pleasure – meaning my Twitter and Facebook streams may sometimes be slightly less than professional, but always fun.
Specialties: Strategic and creative thinking, collaborative brainstorming, making marketing fun, delivering epiphanies, untangling complex ideas, herding cats.
Working with me:
The role I play with my clients is part strategist, part writer, and part project manager. I love being involved at the ground level of a venture, but can get up-to-speed quickly if things are already rolling. When you work with me, we work together. Being a “vendor” or “service provider” is not my thing. I prefer to collaborate as a true partner – getting inside your head so I can understand your vision, helping draw it out of you if you’re not sure what it is, working together to chart a course to the best messaging and content for your brand.
In addition to my right-brained, word-nerd creative side, I also have a very organized and detail-oriented project manager side. There’s always a method to the madness and a process to help us make our way smoothly from Point A to Point B.
But whether I’m channeling my inner muse or task master, I always strive to make the experience of working together as enjoyable as possible. After all, life is short. There’s no reason we can’t have a little fun even when we’re working. Maybe especially while we’re working.
