Dreamer, Boy Mama + Copywriter
I’m one of those girls who wanted to be a writer as soon as I could read picture books as a little lady. I wrote my first story in fourth grade, a Magic School Bus-style trip through the esophagus. Though my career aspirations changed in middle school, when my aunt’s lavish wedding sprouted dreams of making a life as a wedding planner, and again in high school, when my love for arguments convinced me that I’d been born to be a lawyer, I’ve always been a writer at heart.
In college, I wore my label of “English major” proudly, like a pocket typewriter of sorts, and in graduate school (I was a literature student), that pocket device gave way to a pocket anthology of sorts.
After nearly eight years in a classroom, dry erase marker smudges on my hands, teaching aspiring plumbers and diesel mechanics and nurses and marketers the beauty of a well-chosen word, I left teaching after my anxiety and depression earned me a brief hospital stay.
The reasons I left teaching are numerous, but the opportunity to write again, both for myself and for business owners just like YOU, was the nervous-excited-tingly-feeling that I just couldn’t shake. And now, each time that my fingers hit the keyboard, the clickety-clack of the keys sing hymns of gratitude for the opportunity to tell YOUR stories.
For myself, I write about my wide-reaching opinions on the world, my faith, my ongoing battle with anxiety and depression, my home, and my children. But for business owners like you, I write marketing copy that helps you serve YOUR people well – and sell to them, too.
Some of my most favorite things:
- sitting under a soft blanket beside a fire
- loving on my Golden Doodle, Nellie, by scratching her furry, floppy ears
- yelling at the TV while cheering on the Washington Capitals #ALLCAPS
- brainstorming and dreaming about literally ANYTHING
- holding hands with my husband when we’re driving together
- dreaming, DIYing, and decorating my home
- equipping and encouraging business owners like YOU to feel brave enough to share their stories
I am a lover of grammatical sentences – and breaking the rules once in awhile! – wild orange hot tea, women changing the world, my husband Jordan’s cooking, my mama’s homemade hot cocoa, Jesus, podcasts, snuggles with my seven-year-old Lionel, memoirs, building DIY projects with my brother, my youngest son Quincy’s kisses on my nose, and the ease and relief of Nellie the dog’s sighs as bedtime approaches.
Do more of what bubbles up joy in your heart: serve YOUR people through YOUR business.
Leave the word magic to me.
I believe that YOUR people come to YOUR business because it’s just that: YOURS. And to keep the line of clients showing up at your metaphorical door, you’ve got to help YOUR people to find pieces of themselves in YOU and, by extension, in YOUR business. Because if business ownership – and buyer’s choice – isn’t personal, each sweet little storefront in America would only allow ONE owner per industry to set up shop. ONE photographer. ONE dog groomer. ONE calligrapher. ONE therapy clinic.
But friends, we don’t live in that world. Instead, business owners like YOU are able to chase after success because YOUR clients choose to work with YOU. And I’m here to help YOU infuse those courageously unique stories into YOUR business to help you serve YOUR people better and sell to them more.
Now that you’re here, leave the word magic to me.
Let’s chase after the personal side of YOUR business together!
