To write is my passion and my profession.

Here is what others have written about me . . .


“ Most Web content is overwritten…too much context, not nearly enough focus
on the action.”

— Gerry McGovern

"Colleen is an excellent writer who understands
the needs of her audience and how to write in the 'brand's voice.'

For our company, she routinely took complex issues related to government benefit programs and medical eligibility, and converted them into informative articles for our customers.

She is skilled in SEO/Article Marketing. She would identify targeted industry keywords, write SEO-optimized articles, produce the accompanying article images and manage the posting of articles on our WordPress platform and third party content distributors.

Colleen was a joy to work with and would be a valuable asset to any company."

"Colleen is a quick study of very complex and multi-faceted information. She has a keen ability to translate complicated information into straightforward articles and related text.

I like to say Colleen 'worked her magic' as she took several seeds of pertinent information, applied her talents with the written word and created meaningful, informative messages.

Her sense of ownership and personal commitment, along with her organized and disciplined approach to her work, are among Colleen's strengths.

"Colleen is a lifesaver. I hired her to get my new Web site up and running. At a time when I was overwhelmed with work and caught in the dilemma of the technology learning curve, Colleen stepped in to manage the project.

She interviewed me several times to learn about my business, my work perspective and philosophy. From there she developed a site that really represented what I am all about, with great graphics and content. Best of all, I did not have to worry or take time from my busy schedule of listing and selling real estate. Colleen took care of everything!

I think Colleen is best described by these seven attributes: great results; very personable; expert knowledge; good value; on time; high integrity, and wonderfully creative."
