Business & Creative Communications

How can professional writing help your ideas grow?

Creative and technical writing, editing, business development, and marketing strategy. With 15 years of professional writing, editing, and communications experience, I’m familiar with writing in many different contexts and for many different audiences. But the thread that connects each of these situations is my ability to listen hard for what is true, real, and important, and find the best way to put it into words so it can reach people.

Almost everyone can muddle through writing their own website copy, grant applications, and social media posts—and many of us have, at one time or another! But working with an experienced, professional writer ensures that you have excellent content for the projects you need and saves your time for doing the things you’re an expert at. Explore my services to see what I can take off your plate.



Sarah is proactive in her approach to assist her clients. That is a priceless character trait.
