What I Do

Write

Blog posts, social media content, Bible studies, books, curriculum, coaching plans, marketing copy—I truly enjoy creating a variety of quality content.

Edit

With almost six years of editorial experience, I’ve helped authors shape their words for over 165 resources including Bible studies, magazines, videos, books, blog posts, and website copy. I served as the managing editor for LifeWay Students’ monthly devotional magazine Essential Connection for five years and now am the developmental editor for Lifeway Girls Devotions.

Consult

Are you struggling to start that book you’ve always dreamt of writing? Or maybe you wrote the book or study and want someone to give you feedback on your latest draft. Whether it’s building a chapter map for that big idea or giving advice on restructuring and voice of a full manuscript, I’m here to help you.
