I have a skill for taking something that is otherwise boring and mundane and making it stand apart from the competition. My background is in grant and proposal writing, but I also like to incorporate my interest in graphic design to enhance the final grant/proposal package. I like to use my talents of creative, professional writing and visual art to create products that leave a lasting impression. Currently, I am self-employed and provide my roster of clients with services including: program design, grant and proposal writing, marketing campaigns, social media support, design of program materials and other collateral, and special projects. My previous employment of 6 years entailed working for a human services provider, spending much of my time working on marketing and business development. I am skilled at thinking outside of the box and exploring new avenues for funding. I can't wait to talk to you about whatever big project it is that you've got brewing and see how we can put a polished and professional finished piece together.
