“As a career writer and communications strategist, I get inspired figuring out how best to achieve a client’s goals, then developing and executing an effective plan. Their goals become mine. Getting to know an individual or a business, interviewing them, becoming part of their team and then achieving a desired result is incredibly rewarding for me. Every customer I have worked with has come to consider me an important contributor and team member. I get great satisfaction from the work and the intimacy of the relationship.”
