Profile

Dreamer by day, writer by night and proofreader by trade. I love playing with words that help small businesses, start-ups and individuals make their copy sound Naturally Write. 

I'm a potentialite: a person that keeps learning and expanding their knowledge on various subjects. When not busy with work, you'll probably find me at a dance class, browsing in a bookstore, tackling some word puzzle or admiring art in a gallery.

Please feel free to contact me to find out more about my services.
