that engages and converts
As a professional freelancer for 20+ years, writing isn’t my new side hustle or fallback plan. I’m not biding time until a staff job comes along.
Writing for a variety of clients is my real job — and my only job.

I bring the mind of a journalist to everything I write. A quick learner, I listen and then distill your information, brand, and vision into content that works. Let's see how I can help you achieve your goals.

In Others' Words
I worked with Roxanne while I was the Editorial Director at the American Animal Hospital Association leading its publishing operations, which included a $1M+ book imprint, a monthly member magazine, custom content publications, and a daily news site.
Roxanne was a frequent contributor to many of our publications. Roxanne was pretty much always the top choice for not only me but also my entire team when commissioning work because she is such a strong, versatile writer who meets deadlines every time.
She is also very easy to work with—she doesn't need much hand holding because she is knowledgeable enough to create a cohesive narrative among a jumble of complex source material and savvy enough to distinguish between facts and spin. Without fail, she could always be counted on to provide engaging copy, whether it was 600-word piece for the news site, a feature story for the magazine, or an entire 24-page custom content booklet complete with sidebars and infographics.
She has also done a bit of developmental editing for the association's books, providing invaluable insight and alerting us to areas requiring increased scrutiny.
Roxanne is a terrific writer and editor—I highly recommend her and eagerly look forward to working with her again.

Roxanne is an incredibly disciplined, savvy writer, who has the ability to grasp unfamiliar concepts in the blink of an eye and translate them into clear, readable prose. I admire her ability to write so efficiently and so well.

What I value
I make time to foster puppies. Most arrive simply too young to be adopted yet. Others come with medical issues.
