View my full resume
I’ve been a writer my entire life. Even after a successful career as a marketing director for companies such as McGraw-Hill, Teachers College Columbia University, and The College Board, writing beckoned.
In 2007, I moved from the New York City area to Virginia and opened up my content writing company, Seven Oaks Consulting. My goal is to bridge the gap between marketing writing and creative storytelling – to form an entirely new approach to marketing writing that engaged, inspired, connected, and motivated customers in the B2B realm, especially technology and industrial marketing.
I’m passionate about the power of words and the creative use of storytelling through content marketing. From persona to editorial management, I help clients tell their stories in fresh ways that get results.
In addition to writing for clients, I’m also the creator of one of the most popular gardening blogs on the web, author of numerous novels and non-fiction books on gardening, and a columnist for Virginia Gardener magazine. You can find out more information about my Garden Communications writings, speaking engagements, and photography at Home Garden Joy, my gardening website.
And when I’m not writing? You can find me working in my garden, reading mystery novels, playing with our menagerie of pets, hiking alongside my husband John, or trying out a new recipe.
“Be who you are, and be that well.” Life is good. Choose to be happy.
