About Lara

I am a fun and enthusiastic coach that will work with you to establish measurable improvement. With better communication skills, doors open. I have worked as a Technical Writer, Editor, and Marketing professional for 23 years.

Clients that I have worked with include Sandia National Laboratories (a national science laboratory), Coffman Engineers (a consulting engineering firm), Glosten (a naval architecture/marine engineering consulting firm), Trish Bittman Consulting (a digital marketing firm), and Bespoke Copy (a copy writing/editing firm), among many others.

I have held numerous writing workshops for technical and administrative staff. I have also coached on a one-on-one basis to improve a struggling professional's writing and/or word processing skills.

I am very proud of the progress made by my students. Many have gone on to promotions at work, or successful completion of degree programs. I have a rock-solid understanding of grammar, tone, and style. I continually train and refresh my skills.

Currently, I coach a local writing group of twenty professional writers, Winslow Writers.

The following is a professional review of my skills:

"I hired [her] to write content for my business website. Even though I am a writer, I can't write about what I do for work - it's just not my thing. [She] met with me and asked me questions I never would have thought of. She took my rambling answers and turned it into beautiful copy. I could not be more pleased with her work. It's more and better than I thought it could be. I sent the copy on to my web designer and he was impressed with the content as well. [She] absolutely knows what she is doing and her services are quite reasonable. She's professional and gets the job done well and quickly."
