Let’s get acquainted

I grew up in Buffalo, New York. Minneapolis, Minnesota is home. I like it here so much I moved here twice. Yes, I have a story about that.

I graduated from Denison University with a bachelor’s of arts degree in political science and religion. I earned a master’s of theological studies from Harvard Divinity School — the source of some of my best stories. And because I wanted to stay a student, I got a master’s in public affairs from the Humphrey Institute at the University of Minnesota.

I did not set out to be a business communications professional. Over time — and with more than a few bumps in the road along the way — I became one as I came to understand that communications excellence has been at the heart of every success I’ve achieved and enjoyed in my career.

I have been crafting marketing messaging, developing and issuing press releases, conducting PR and media relations to advance and place stories, and writing articles for national trade publications and journals for more than 25 years.

Innovative companies choose me to bring their stories to light.

I have specialized in B2B communications as an independent professional since 2000.

As a Strategic Storyteller, I do good work and get great results — resulting in a total of eight Bronze Quill Awards from the International Association of Business Communicators for outstanding achievement in writing and media relations.

The most important awards I have won are the accolades of my clients.
