I believe in being relational, not transactional.

Since 2009 I have specialized in writing and editing web copy and blog posts for small business owners. My ghostwriting and editing clients have included therapists in private practice, dental and medical professionals, and a variety of consultants and entrepreneurs.

The Mindful Scrivener is a one-woman show. I don't farm out work to other freelancers.

In addition to my sharp editing eye and innovative mind, I'm also super nice and very easy to work with. Ask anyone. (Or read these testimonials.)

I believe no one is served by a transactional approach to business.

You can depend on me to:

  • communicate transparently about our shared project goals;

  • be responsive to your feedback about the writing itself or our collaborative process;

  • safeguard your privacy;

  • be clear about job scope and the parameters of our work agreement.

My relationship-focused perspective on copywriting is influenced by graduate-level training in psychology with a mindfulness framework, plus nearly a decade of clinical counseling experience. My clinical specialties include grief and loss, child development, and art therapy. I also have a background in studio art and an undergraduate degree in English. 

I give my time, money, and support to these fine local organizations: FaithAction International House, which provides aid and resources to immigrant and refugee families; Black Lives Matter and Southerners on New Ground, two queer- and trans-affirming collectives working toward racial justice and liberation for all people; and the Interactive Resource Center, a lifeline for people in Greensboro who are experiencing homelessness.

Although I defy many of the classic editor stereotypes, I am a cat person.

I'm energized by collaborative relationships — working together in service to your clients and to the world.

I see our collaboration as a mutual investment: you invest financially and energetically in a clearly defined project, and I invest my time and skills in making your professional services vibrant and visible so your ideal clients can find you.
