“Susan has an intuitiveness in her writing that not only captures her subject in their truest light, but also hooks the reader into wanting to know more. She brings flair to fact and is a tremendous resource when creatively structuring that crucial first impression with regards to any project.”— Rachael Yamagata, Singer/Songwriter



For more than 25 years, I’ve been a writer and storyteller of personal essays, articles, bios, and B2B / B2C marketing and communications materials. I’ve conducted countless interviews and always go through a deep discovery process.

Check out my portfolio page to see the range of subjects and topics I like to tackle while remaining open to new opportunities.

Regardless of what type of writing I’m doing, I always think like a journalist to find the right hook, dig deep like an archeologist to uncover the treasures, create like a mad scientist to ignite the alchemy, and lace it with strategy for impact.

I’m always open to discussing future collaborations and opportunities with publications, brands, companies, brands, organizations, and growth-stage start-ups – get in touch with me here.


I’m eager to tell your story! As a versatile writer, I can write on most topics and am easily brought up to speed.

I meet deadlines, have experience, write on a variety of topics from personal essays to taking complex, dull corporate/brand copy and making it compelling, accessible, and actionable.

My style is flexible and while I can take a project and run with it, I love collaborating with clients who want to be more involved.

To see samples of my work for clients, please check out my portfolio.
