About

cjb_headshotA freelancer for the past four years, I write about a variety of topics, including travel, food, craft beverage, the environment and health. I have bylines in numerous consumer, custom and B2B publications, including Northwest Travel & Life, Beer Advocate, Sip Northwest, Subaru Drive Performance, Whitman Magazine, Country Folks Grower, Wine & Craft Beverage News and more.

I am a member of the Society of American Travel Writers and the North American Guild of Beer Writers.

I create content for newsletters, blogs, web sites and print collateral to help businesses spark excitement and stay connected to their customers. I have created print and digital content for tourism boards, tour companies, hotels and the healthcare industry, among others.

I also provide grant writing and consultation to nonprofits to hone their messaging, mission and goals for more effective fundraising.

As a former speech language pathologist, I have years of experience translating technical information to a general audience and special knowledge in communication and language, paired with a strong research background.

I am passionate about the art of writing, no matter the topic, highly motivated, and details-driven without losing sight of the big picture. I respond to emails and phone calls promptly and prefer to be ahead of deadline.

Fun Fact: In 2015 I hiked the Pacific Crest Trail with my husband. It took us 5 months and 5 days.

Originally from Maine, my husband and I spent the last four years living in Walla Walla, Washington and recently moved back to our home state with our young daughter. When I’m not writing, I’m either outdoors playing with her or planning our next adventure.
