Professional Summary

I'm a website and UX writer motivated to design digital experiences that educate, empower, and delight.

I'm open to new opportunities where I can merge my experience in content strategy, storytelling, and UX design. As a former agency director, I'm accustomed to adapting to new brand voices, collaborating with multi-disciplinary teams, and managing multiple projects. I have experience writing, testing, and deploying digital content that makes a real impact. 

I hold a B.A. in Creative Writing and International Affairs from Colorado College and a Certificate in UX/UI Design from Eleven Fifty Academy. As a freelancer, I've created content for brands including DemandJump, Busuu, CareerFoundry, and AppsFlyer.

 

In addition to writing, I bring the following strengths to a team:

  • Creating design systems and voice and style guides

  • Collaborating with cross-cultural teams to produce globalized and localized content

  • Mapping user flows and creating wireframes to ideate solutions

  • Interviewing stakeholders for qualitative research

  • Analyzing Google Analytics and other data to measure performance

My Design Philosophy

Every word counts. I believe that each word and design choice can make or break a customer experience.

Conversational. We don't write the way we think or talk. In many cases, that should change.

Global-minded. Today's content should be written for a global audience and inclusive of different languages, cultures, genders, and abilities.

Plain language. Above all, I love turning complex topics into clear and engaging human language.
