MEET MICHELLE


HI! I'M MICHELLE


I'm an award-winning writer and social media manager with almost a decade of experience.

I love being a Freelance Writer because it presents limitless learning opportunities as I take on clients in new industries and write for unique audiences


HOW I GOT HERE

  • For the last nine years, I've been running between two doors: one to the corporate world and one to an entrepreneurial land.
  • While I once enjoyed both worlds simultaneously, I recently chose the high road and left the corporate world behind.
  • I've always been dedicated to my corporate work, but my freelance clients are my passion.
  • I've been fortunate to work with many loyal clients over the years, who represent businesses and industries that I support and believe in.
