No, really.

I’m into the weird, the interesting, the dark, the random, and the stories that need to be told.

What can I say? It’s a compulsion!

It comes from reading lots of books, traveling to distant lands and (literally) hunting for ghosts in graveyards. Ah, college.

I've helped companies and business owners bring order to chaos, tell their story, and find their fans.

We developed strategies that brought forth results. What results?

- Sales funnels that convert and sound human.

- Consistent communication with my clients’ customers.

- Content systems you can actually work.

I want your business to be successful. I have the skills to do it for you.

My years as a journalist helped me gain a healthy respect (and fear) of deadlines. I believe in working hard and doing things right, with the right tools and systems, the first time.

Bottom line: I take your creative ideas and bring in the structure to make them happen.

Also: I live in Portland, Oregon with my family.

Cannabis is the new frontier. Is your copy ready?

 
 

Not to brag, but I totally wrote about cannabis before it was cool.

Let’s be frank: Lots of people out there are trying to capitalize on the Green Rush. But that doesn’t qualify them as knowledgeable enough to write about weed or CBD products.

I’ve explored basement grows in Alaska, interviewing people about how they feel about their way of life becoming “legalized” when they were just fine without it.

I’ve cooked cannabutter in a tiny Crock-Pot, calculating the exact ratios for a brownie recipe I could publish.

I know a terpene from a cannabinoid, and I know better than to suggest someone start with vaping a concentrate.

I’ve met with vape manufacturers and questioned them about whether their products reflected women’s typical cannabis consumption habits.

Also: I’m certified by the OLCC (Oregon Liquor Control Commission) with a Marijuana Worker Permit.

Here’s some of my work:

Brit was an excellent self-starter. I enjoyed having her on the team and would recommend her as great support to anyone launching a product or developing an extensive content package.

Matt Levin, VP of Marketing & Sales Development at SimpleReach

Brit was our editor-in-chief for our industry newsletter, and was a critical part of our success and growth with this important content initiative. She picked up on our style and voice quickly, and developed a strong understanding of the industry dynamics required to write and edit a sophisticated newsletter for media and marketing professionals. She's a great asset for anyone looking for writing and editing capabilities, particularly when it comes to email newsletters.

Nailah Blades-Wylie AND Nicole Blades, Hey, Sis! Podcast

Brit came on board to help us the launch of our new podcast. She was a huge help in launching our social media strategy, growing our audience initially and keeping our social channels topped up with interesting and relevant content. She also stepped in to help us stay organized with booking and communicating with guests for the show. We'd recommend Brit to anyone looking for a social media manager to keep their channels organized and consistent!

I had the pleasure of working with Brit recently and, I have to say, she is amazing. Her social media posts, research skills and copywriting abilities are second to none.

To be totally honest, the best copy from our project together came from her. Not only would I hire Brit again in a heartbeat, I'm putting a funnel in place specifically to find projects to bring her in on.


Shannon LaGasse, Hunger for Happiness

Brit is a fantastic social media manager and an amazing support for my business. She’s on top of current trends and always knows exactly what to post to create the most buzz on my page. She’s very open and receptive to feedback and an incredibly hard worker. Super grateful for her support in managing the social media!

Cybele Loening, MYstery author

When I was getting ready to publish my mystery novel, I hired Brit to do my social media and help me publicize my book. She came up with the great idea of doing an online book tour that directly targeted lovers of mysteries, which helped me sell about 1,000 copies. It was amazing! Brit is a true professional and an absolutely lovely person to work with.

Okay, bad joke.

 

I've been writing and creating far before I did it as a job. Many of those pieces I'm still incredibly proud of, and am delighted to share with you all.
