Master's Degree

Queen's University

Bachelor's Degree

University of Guelph

While at the University of Guelph, I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in History and Political Science. 

Work With Me
 
B2B Content Writing

In a time when people are skimming through webpages faster than their thumbs can keep up, it's important to make your copy stand out. With compelling copy and strategic insight, I make sure that your message stops people mid-scroll.

Freelance Writing

There's nothing worse than a juicy headline with no substance. I go beyond clickbait to craft stories that engage and inform. I frequently cover stories related to food, travel, and lifestyle.

Content Marketing

Baffled by backlinks? Obsessed with organic traffic? Content is what you need. From improving your Google ranking to launching your first ebook, I'll help you craft content that fits your marketing goals.
