Professional writing services for all stages of life.

Writing Tutoring

Personalized virtual coaching to strengthen your academic or creative writing skills. As a former professor, I can help you improve your writing and access greater opportunities.

Admissions Essay Consulting

Artfully convey to admissions committees why you deserve a spot in their program. I've helped clients get into medical school, medical residency and post-graduate fellowships.

Writing for Employment

Resume, CV, and cover letter review and editing. Whether you are applying to a specific position or making general updates, I'll combine my writing skills with knowledge of the application process to help you land the job you want.


From researching opportunities to creating a submission timeline to writing and reviewing grant proposals, I can assist with the grantseeking process. I have secured individual, local, and federal grants up to half a million dollars.

Creative Consultations

I offer developmental feedback, line edits, and coaching on poetry, prose, script, gaming, and academic projects. As an award-winning writer, I can also write a commissioned piece for your next publication or production.

Memoirs, Memorials & Legacy Writing

As an INELDA-trained end-of-life doula, I specialize in legacy work—projects that express your values and leave something for loved ones to cherish. This includes memoirs, obituaries, ethical wills, last letters, recipe books, poems, vigil planning, and much more.

About Me
