My goal is to make your life easier! My core purpose is to provide high-quality, carefully written blog posts and articles as part of a long-term strategy that helps your business grow, now and into the future.
My home base is Condon, Oregon, a rural community located on the dry and windblown Columbia River Plateau. This geographically large but little-known area is often known as the Oregon Outback.
A Little Info About Me
I grew up on my family’s wheat and cattle ranch on the high desert of Eastern Oregon’s Columbia River Plateau. Growing up on a ranch between two small towns provided me with a high regard for the importance of community. I strive to operate my business with honesty and integrity. My goal is to help businesses who strive to make the world a better place. I am committed to “writing for a purpose.”
I am a graduate of Eastern Oregon State University, where I earned undergrad degrees in Anthropology and Sociology and a Masters degree in Creative Nonfiction Writing. I have been writing professionally for several years, first as a staff writer for a community newspaper, then later as a freelancer specializing in B2B and B2C writing. I have been writing about addiction and mental health for nearly ten years.
Before entering the world of freelancing, I served as Research Assistant for clinical trials sponsored by NIDA, Kaiser Hospital and Oregon Health Sciences University, and was employed as toxicology coordinator for a large outpatient treatment center in Portland.
Along with my son and husband, I am partner in a century-old western bar and grill located in Condon, Oregon’s historic district. When I’m not working, I enjoy gardening, music, and reading contemporary literature. I am a pretty good piano player, and I also play the banjo, mandolin, harmonica and spoons. (Yes, spoons!)
A Final Word (or Two)
I am not a content mill and I don’t compete with low-market sweatshops that pay their writers pennies per article to grind out cheap, poor quality content. I am highly skilled at writing useful, relevant, readable content that will shine a light on your drug and alcohol treatment center or rehab. I don’t produce dull, cookie-cutter articles that read like they’re written by a robot.
I understand how to conduct research, using viable, authoritative sources. I will always honor your privacy and the confidentiality of your business.
