Writer & Editor

Communications Consultant
When it comes to their own communications, even the smartest people become text-blind. That’s why successful professionals and organizations hire communications specialists. I am a content strategist and communications consultant with more than 20 years of experience in print and electronic outreach for individuals, corporations and non-profits.

My experience
Formerly the Director of Information Architecture & Content Strategy for Collaborate Communications, I have experience across platforms in B2B, commercial, non-profit and personal communications, including large- and small-scale websites, RFPs, development and grants, white papers, letters, speeches and scripts. Whether you need someone to take the reins on your project, to put fresh eyeballs on your work or to coach you through your process, let’s be in touch. Education: I hold an AB, summa cum laude, from Harvard and a Ph.D. in English from UC Berkeley.

Selected Clients
My portfolio spans a range of for-and non-profit corporations across industries, and reflects a wide variety of services offered. A partial client list: Amnesty International, Autodesk, Bank of America, eTrade Sweden, Pew Charitable Trusts, Regarding Susan (HBO Film), Rock the Vote, Special Olympics Northern California and Visa International.
