Crafting Words for Your Business
I am a professional writer and educator, and I have a way with words.
As a published author, I have experience in producing content for a wide variety of media. Website text, original articles, letters, brochures, annual reports, newsletters, press releases, and speeches are all in my wheelhouse.
I graduated from the University of Texas with a degree with honors in English and Spanish.
After teaching high school for a few years, I opened my own business, A Way With Words. I have worked with many clients to produce text that is compelling and readable, and free of jargon and errors, providing them with their desired results.
Travel has been a happy part of my life, giving me the opportunity to learn communication techniques with a wide variety of people and cultures.
My experience in being a founder and chair of the Davidson Housing Coalition has taught me how to express the needs of a nonprofit in a persuasive way.
For sixteen years, I was an elected member of the Town Board of Davidson. My time in the political realm allowed me to work with planning and decision-making. It gave me the chance to write about our community, winning a number of national grants. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention awarded us a three-year grant to be a part of their Healthy Community Initiative. We were also given the national Smart Growth Award by the EPA. Expressing the hopes and dreams of our community to receive positive attention and grants sharpened my writing skills in a unique way.
My first novel, “Madame President,” is a political thriller that received all five-star reviews on Amazon.
I am currently one of the managing co-editors of a local news and information site, News of Davidson.
