Freelance writer and editor focusing on health, wellness, fitness, and food. Experience includes feature articles, news writing, e-books, blog posts, brochures, webpages, and social media posts.

Seven reasons to hire me:
- Will never consider "deadline" a synonym for "suggested due date."
- Native Midwesterner, therefore trained from an early age to be affable. Can also do the "Fargo accent" on demand.
- Obsessed with providing clean copy, but won't get growly about rewrites or additions.
- Voted "Most Helpful Camper" at YWCA Camp Pepin in 3rd grade. Have been working to retain that title ever since.
- Liked bacon before it was cool.
- Can turn any complex research study into an engaging paragraph. It's like magic, but with fewer props.
- Good at making lists.
