Please select an available time to chat via the scheduler. We'll spend ~30 minutes discussing your project and getting to know each other a bit better. You will be prompted to fill out a brief questionnaire in order to lock in your meeting time.
For speaking inquiries please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Absolutely, I do. Typically you’ll submit a 50% deposit to secure your slot on my calendar and then you’ll pay the rest at the end of the project. Depending on how far in advance you book, I can offer monthly payment installments or payment in the beginning, middle, and end of the engagement. TL;DR, if you want to work with me, we’ll find a way to make it fit your budget!
Depends on the season, but I’m usually booking new projects 4-6 weeks out. If you need a rush job, I often have small windows of time reserved where I can fit you in—fill out the contact form above to start the conversation.
Start here. Copy dictates design, even your brand colors and logo. Designers will often (more like, always) take the brand strategy blueprint I craft for your business and use it to inform their work. I bake research and strategy into every project, and if you start with design, you may end up with messaging and visuals that aren’t aligned and have to go back to your designer to redo their work. If you’re a service provider (in particular) your copywriting has a higher return on investment in the beginning. (Trust me, I work with several brand designers who much prefer for you to get your brand and messaging sorted first, and then come to them with brand clarity and enthusiasm!)
Heck yes, I can. I have a Rolodex full of creative service providers I have used or partnered with on client work I’m dying for you to meet. I’ll play matchmaker and recommend the best-fit people to help you grow your business: Designers, developers, OBMs, bookkeepers, brand photographers, Pinterest managers, you name it. Just tell me what you need.
If you’re looking for something a little different from the offers on my Services Page, and you’re digging my vibe, I’d love to talk about putting together a bespoke proposal that meets your every need. It’s worth noting that I don’t cut corners, though. I rarely skip the strategy phase of a project—even if you’ve worked with a designer or agency who took you through their own strategy process. Messaging and copywriting strategy is different from visual, social, PR, and comms strategies. Let’s talk it out and see how we can get you what you need.
When it comes to your copy, the platform doesn’t matter. I have a personal affinity for Showit and Tonic Site Shop templates (get 15% off with code BIGPICTURE), but I have written words used on just about every platform. However, it’s good for me to know which website (or email!) platform you’ll be using and whether you’ll be using a designer, a template design, or DIY-ing fully so I can format the page in a way that compliments the platform. For example, some platforms make adding in microcopy and other way-finding UX difficult without custom code. But trust me, if you’re planning to transfer your copy to a piece of paper and then photograph it, your messaging will resonate, no matter the medium!
I already filled out a branding questionnaire with a designer/coach/other contractor. Can we skip the brand strategy part of our work together?
No, we cannot. Here’s why: A designer is focused on translating your brand visually. A coach or consultant is focused on aligning your brand with their specific services. They might ask some of the same questions but their angle does not take you where you need to go to produce the right words and phrases for your business. As your copywriter, I’m focused on creating a *messaging strategy*. My strategy process isn’t the same as theirs. While I encourage you to share any strategy work you’ve done prior to our project, I must go through my signature brand strategy process. (For the record, the Brand Strategy Blueprint deck is the #1 most shared client deliverable. My clients end up sharing it with their teams and all future contractors because it contains the copy swipes, brand story, and positioning you need to market your products and services. Marketing is, after all, 99% words, words, words.)
You are thorough and I love that about you. After you select your preferred time on the calendar and submit the form you will receive a confirmation email with your Zoom meeting link. Around 12 hours before our meeting you’ll receive a reminder email. After our conversation, if we’re both madly in love with each other, I’ll send you a project proposal reiterating everything we talked about and walking you through the timeline, process, deliverables, and budget for you to review and approve. Once the contract is signed and your deposit received, we’ll lock in your kickoff meeting time, and you’ll receive your onboarding materials including any pre-work questionnaires and a place to submit any existing testimonials, research, etc. I use Dubsado and Google Drive to automate and house all communications and documents so nothing gets lost and everything is easily accessible to everyone.
