What I’ve done

I have worked with a long list of clients from a wide variety of industries. Listed below are my current clients.

Industries I’ve worked in and topics I’ve written about include:

  • Wine, food and drink
  • Lifestyle and travel
  • Video game development
  • Jewelry
  • Health and wellness
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Home products (descriptions & development)
  • Interior design, architecture and construction
  • Building materials
  • Water purification
  • Marketing and b2b sales
  • Technical writing (manuals, technical information pamphlets)

The takeaway though should be that I’m ready and willing to tackle any topic at any time. My passion is writing – and all of the fun research I get to do when I approach a new topic. You’ll be able to see that in my work.

Quench Magazine

Editorial Assistant; 2010 – current

Quench Magazine is a national food and drink magazine based in Montreal, Quebec. I started out way back in 2010 as a journalist, writing articles for their website and magazine. Over time, I’ve grown within the company to wear several hats:

  • Proof reading each issue before it goes to print
  • Managing their IQ Hashtag Social Media campaign and Instagram accounts
  • Scheduling website content
  • Writing and editing articles for the website and print magazine

Articles published in their print magazine are available upon request.

Q School
From December 2014 until June 2015, I worked on Q School, a micro-publication containing three to four articles per issue.

Care is There Geriatric Care Management

Community Resource Coordinator; 2011 – current

Care is There is a geriatric care management company based in Charlottesville, Virginia. As the Community Resource Coordinator, I am responsible for website management (updating pages and posting content, including blogs), email newsletter creation and event marketing preparation. I do, on occasion, write articles and website content as needed. Every piece I write myself follows the branding and structure set out by owner and founder, Elizabeth Swider.

Here are two of the articles I’ve written for Care is There:

Opimian

Writer & Editor; 2015 – current

Opimian is Canada’s premier wine club, providing members from across the country with exclusive wines and tons of wine knowledge. Prior to launching my freelance business full time, I worked at Opimian in Communications and Special Projects (they liked me well enough to keep me on as a freelancer afterwards… or so I assume). At the moment, I work with them on an as-needed basis. Some of the projects I’ve completed include:

  • Proofing/editing Opimian News, their eight-paged newsletter
  • Preparing, editing and managing the 2016 Wine Review, an 80-page document published once a year
  • Writing and editing marketing copy
  • Preparing and editing the 2017 Wine Review

Joy Works Marketing

Writer; 2014 – 2016

Joy Works Marketing is a marketing agency catering to the travel industry. During my time working with them, I prepared website copy for them and their clients, as well as blog articles, marketing content and more.

Website Copy

Robinson Carpentry

My goal was to provide the Robinson’s with website content that would reflect their personalities – approachable yet professional.

Primma Cuisine
Primma Cuisine wanted a fun, yet professional feel to their website text. Working closely with them, I prepared copy for each page, revised as requested and polished the words to reflect their brand.

Kleur Design
Christine DenOuden of Kleur Design provided me with an outline and a section of text. Her ideas and personality shine through her images and I needed to accentuate that with the words.

Hickory Homes
Working with Hickory Homes, a construction company that offers its clients custom designed homes, I prepared the website copy for each page, suggested possible page divisions and, when updates occur, am on hand to prepare or edit future text.

Video Scripts

Fungi Marketing

In 2016, I prepared video scripts for Fungi Marketing’s website.

Opimian

Also in 2016, I worked with the Opimian team to prepare video scripts for Opimian’s new website.
