The short version is I make things and solve problems. The long version is much longer.
I call myself an “Everythingist.” You might have heard the terms “polymath” or “multipotentialite” or “Renaissance person.”
I’ve worked in media, nonprofit, tech, retail, food and beverage, and #agencylife. I’ve consulted for arts organizations, small businesses, podcasters, quasi-governmental entities, and with real estate and publishing professionals. I’m adaptable and I’m a life-long learner.
My words become articles, essays, website copy, newsletters, or blog posts. I also edit for other writers, specializing in nonfiction, academic (humanities), personal essay, memoir, and fiction. I develop executable action plans for events, programs, marketing campaigns, product launches, and the like. Also, my training manuals are legendary; one client called me the “queen of documentation,” which I will definitely put on a t-shirt someday.
While each clients’ situation is unique, everyone comes to me for one universal reason: They all need help.
Should you work with me?
The folx I work with fall into the magic, nougaty center of these three overlapping circles: People who know they need help. People who actually want help. People willing to do the work.

I pride myself on helping my clients get exactly what they need: I don’t recommend services that don’t help further your goals. And I only use my extensive network of designers, producers, advertisers, and other badasses if that’s actually useful. I do a lot of listening and planning, as well as training and handholding—we’re in this together, after all.
If I’ve done my job right, I may only work with a client once on any given project, though I’m always honored when clients bring me back for new projects or recurring events.

So, who am I?
When I was a kid and people asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I said “famous.” Adults liked to correct me that “being famous” wasn’t a job, so I amended it to “writer” instead.
Really, I was born to be a storyteller: My mother went into labor during a hurricane; I started talking before I could walk; I could read by age two and write full sentences by age four; I was voted “Most Dramatic” in my high school class; I’m a “lifelong Coloradan” who was technically born in Texas; I hail from a long line of Southern women, so I can talk circles around squares. It was fated that I tell stories—both others’ and my own.
I’m a parent, a backyard chicken-keeper, and an urban farmer (when our squirrel overlords allow it). I give history and public art tours of Denver. I have a bachelor’s in rhetoric. What the heck is that? Exactly. But I promise you, I’m fun at parties. My jokes are terrible. And my personal motto is: How can I help?
So, how can I help?
