I’ve always loved writing and thought it was my dream job.
However, my school counselor suggested pursuing a more lucrative tech career, saying “you’re pretty good at math for a girl” (yes, they did). Degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science led me to high tech, including roles in R&D, Quality, and IT.
Fast-forward to the mid-90s: I was in IT management when websites arrived on the scene. With sparse course offerings available, it was on-the-job training. Fully consumed with work and two youngsters, I programmed personal site projects late into the night.
As the lone female web designer surrounded by male “Webmasters,” I laughingly called myself The Web Diva®. It stuck.
After 20 years in high-tech, freelance web work was my next opportunity. I was quickly frustrated when clients were unable to deliver their essential website content — especially About pages. That led to:
- Developing content for hundreds of my web design clients.
- Branching out to serve folks hiring other (non-writing) web pros.
- Publishing a book to help business owners find, hire, and partner with the right web designer for them.
I’m especially interested in helping clients learn how to Brag Your Butt Off… Without Being a Pain in the A**. We work together to confidently deliver stories that productively highlight their accomplishments, without sounding obnoxious or pushy. I enjoy giving presentations on this topic, and post about it frequently on LinkedIn.
- Wallowing in yarn, fabric, sequins + glitter.
- Singing along to Broadway soundtracks.
- Listening for the timer signaling cookies ready to exit the oven.
I’m on LinkedIn every day, feel free to connect there!
We work together to:
- Select from my cookbook of kitchen-tested recipes.
- Gather your authority ingredients (skills, experience, credentials, and results).
- Stir in social proof and a dash of your personality.
- Bake it into a tempting, tasty format, where every word adds flavorful value.
- Serve up delicious content!
