Story
Introduction
Clients find I'm good at listening, asking the right questions, then translating what I hear into writing --  plans (strategic/business/project), grant applications, marketing materials, enewsletters, website or blog copy. You talk, I translate.

Many of my local clients also use me to facilitate planning, teach the use of free or low cost web 2.0 tools, and to coach leadership and grant writers.
