I received my degree in English literature at the University of Wisconsin. I have a law degree and spent my career in advertising and public relations as a writer, editor and marketing director. I am a versatile, clear and logical writer and am a prodigious reader of fiction and nonfiction. I have served as a writing coach and career adviser for a number of high school and college-bound students.

I'm familiar with sales and marketing disciplines as well as accounting and business IT. My law degree has also informed my business career in a number of areas including contracts, business regulations and proposals.

I've built three successful service businesses in three diverse industries serving a variety of clients. The common element in all three was my ability to develop and execute effective marketing plans for small, medium and large companies.
Large clients included Monsanto, Caterpillar, Pioneer Seed, Eveready, and the Trane Company. Smaller companies included McCarthy Brothers, Auffenburg Automotive, Drury Hotels, Tripos Molecular Modeling software and PTSDstress.com, a web based provider of programs to address and alleviate traumatic stress symptoms.
Whether the client is electronically sophisticated and integrated or is more of a traditional manufacturer or distributor, I have been able to increase sales and profits by implementing a variety of sales process systems.
