I’m a freelance professional located in the San Francisco Bay Area with over 20 years of experience in editing, writing, and project management.


I work with writers at any stage of a project, from developmental editing to copyediting. I specialize in fiction, particularly YA, fantasy, and romance, but I’ll work in any genre. I’m happy to tailor a plan that will fit your needs.


I’ve created content for a varied client base, including startups, local publications, educational companies, and nonprofits. My past work includes blog posts, marketing copy, study guides, feature articles, and business documents.


I’m a project manager with experience in business and product development. From organization to communication, I can help you focus on the big picture and stay on track.


I earned my Masters in Journalism from UC Berkeley and recently completed a Certificate in Novel Writing at Stanford’s Continuing Studies program. Currently, I’m a business and content strategist for Shut Up & Write, an organization dedicated to helping writers get their writing done. I’d love to help you get your writing done, too.
