I create content that engages audiences and drives client goals. With nearly two decades of professional writing and editing experience in my arsenal, I’ve developed an unbeatable content one-two punch:

1. A no-nonsense approach to clean, accurate, well-researched copy.
2. A conversational tone that captures your brand voice.

Before you hire me to tell your story, here’s mine, and more about what I can do for you...

What Clients Are Saying

"’Dependable’ may as well be Dawn's middle name. I've hired her for a number of content writing and editing projects, and she always gets the job done. But more than getting it done on time (it itself a too-rare skill!), she gets it done right. I'm a tough critic when it comes to writing, and Dawn gets my highest praise for content structure, reporting, research, and brand voice. She turns in camera-ready copy that is better than you hope it'll be. Most important, she's kind to work with and easily collaborated with my team. I'll definitely hire her again.”

Margaret Magnarelli

VP of Marketing at Monster.com

“I rely on Dawn to hunt down interesting stories, collect research, interview sources and write articles for the magazine. The magazine targets marketing leaders, who do not put up with puff pieces. Her work is intelligent, thought-provoking and always on time.”

Clare McDermott

former chief editor, Chief Content Officer magazine

“Dawn consistently delivers copy that provides actionable ideas and opens up conversations between leaders across various campus departments—meaning she’s playing a valuable role in our goal of breaking down silos within American higher education. Bonus: In every manuscript she turns in, I can count on a few clever, stylistic word choices that make me smile.”

Melissa Ezarik

senior managing editor, University Business magazine

“Dawn is the best kind of freelancer: one that requires few edits and oversight, writes clear, concise copy, and usually gets it in before deadline. It was a pleasure working with Dawn for nearly two years and I would highly recommend her (and have!), especially in the B2B content space!”

Amber van Moessner

former managing editor of NewsCred

“I've hired Dawn to do ongoing work for my content marketing agency, and have been consistently impressed with the high-quality, well-researched content she's submitted, as well as her assistance with editing and web production. I recommend her highly as a freelance writer and editor.”
