About me

I've been a freelance writer for 5 years, and during that time I have written on so many different topics I've basically become the girl version of Cliff Claven. Hopefully I'm not as annoying.But in all seriousness, I have experience with technical writing, magazine articles, flyers, product catalogs, email marketing, radio scripts, blogging, and white papers.


  • Bachelor Degree in Psychology from the University of British Columbia
