"Emily is the secret weapon every organization needs. As a deeply strategic thinker, a careful listener, a master storyteller and a beautiful writer, she creates high quality, high impact communications every time."
Katherine Hay, President & CEO, Kids Help Phone
As an extremely flexible and versatile writer with extensive experience in fundraising, marketing and executive communications, speechwriting, academic writing, journalism and more, I will help you and your team reach your audiences with clarity and conviction.
You have the content, but it's not quite hitting the mark and needs a little TLC from a professional editor. Or perhaps you just need a fresh set of eyes to proofread your nearly-there text. From structural editing to stylistic editing to copyediting and proofreading, I'm your go-to editor for any need.
COMMUNICATIONS CONSULTING & PLANNING
You need a little more than writing and editing: you need someone to help you and your team define your goals and objectives, hone in on your audiences, develop a communications plan for the quarter, year, project or campaign and support the execution of that plan (or any combination of the above!). Get in touch and let's talk about how I can help you.
