All of us depend on stories. We consume stories by reading novels, memoirs, watching films, and even reading non-fiction books and articles. We construct our own life stories, patching together the fragments of our lives and into a recognizable pattern.

My story includes several years as a college professor in the humanities (religious studies, history, and philosophy) and as a senior academic administrator. During that time, I mastered several skills and areas of expertise that I now use for the benefit of my clients:

  • As a scholar and business professional, I have conducted advanced cultural, social science, legal, and public policy research and analysis. This means that all of the material that I produce for you will be accurately and appropriately researched.
  • Having helped thousands of college students improve their writing skills, I have become an advanced writer and editor. I especially enjoy translating obscure or technical material into easily accessible, plain language. Therefore, you will always receive a concisely written, grammatically correct, and engaging product.
  • As a college executive, I created and supervised development of marketing materials and campaigns in print and online—activity that I have continued in my current business. You will appreciate my working hard to understand and help to resolve your strategic and communications challenges.

Often, I provide new or revised content for websites. I also create blogs, write grant proposals, develop business plans, create online or print marketing materials, and research and write white papers and success stories (case studies). I have come to realize, however, that I help most by listening and thoroughly understanding the goals of individuals and organizations. On that basis, I will work with you to tell your story in a compelling way.

Lately, I have been concentrating in the health care, dental care, and transportation sectors, as well as continuing to work with not-for-profit organizations.

Above all, please write or call so that we can begin a conversation.

Have you ever noticed what makes a collage so mesmerizing? The overlapping edges! Just like the fascinating intersection of art, science, history, and business, I approach consulting with a creatively analytical mind.

My own punctuated evolution illustrates this point. I’m an artist. A physicist. A business woman. An American cultural scholar. A writer. I know that at first glance these areas appear to be disparate. But each layer informed the next. In other words, weaving together our experiences, makes us distinctive—more important, it defines our niche.

Do you agree that, all too often, professionals don’t listen to their clients? My approach–to actively listen to your story—allows me to adeptly discern a strategic path forward.

Since we encounter a wide variety of organizational and individual situations, you can count on me to develop an overall analysis of your organization’s circumstances and map a communications and marketing strategy that will allow you to realize your ambitions.

Please send us a brief description of your situation and concerns so that we can begin a conversation about how best to move forward. I look forward to sharing in your story.

Aslan

As the namesake of Aslan in C. S. Lewis’s Narnia series, I guard against the evil that lurks beyond our hearth. I’m a compassionate, but not tame, companion, who provides comfort and perspective for the humans who live with me.

Often, I feel that they misunderstand my intentions since they try to bar my access to the computer keyboard (they obviously failed this time!). Nevertheless, they feed me (not as much as I would like); so I will allow them to remain for now.

For all consulting needs, I advise you to contact the humans via the white light box. Leave me free to hunt mice, sharpen my claws, and take long naps.
