Delivering razor-sharp and laser-focused marketing content since 2007

A versatile and detail oriented marketing copywriter, I master new material quickly and produce highly polished, on-brand content that works. I crafted an exciting narrative around a water startup that brought in more than $150,000 in prize money over nine months, and achieved close to 10 percent year-over-year increase in charitable donations for global humanitarian relief. In my free time, I recently raised more than $19,000 over four months on social media to help a friend.

I work independently, perform well in teams, stay on message and never miss deadlines.

Born in southern Africa and raised in the southwestern United States, Guatemala and Mexico, I've lived in Pittsburgh since 2016 after spending my adult life in Chicago, where I moved for college. In addition to working as a women's health educator and adult literacy teacher, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from University of Illinois, then a Master of Science in Journalism from Northwestern University. Since then I have served a broad array of clients and audiences through writing, editing and translating. Fluent in English and Spanish, I am also conversant in American Sign Language.
