I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am happily married and a proud mother of three. I am the creator of the Say This Write blog and Thought Boxes. I wrote for school newspapers all through high school and college. After earning a B.S. degree in Communications, Public Relations with a minor in Technical Writing from Weber State University in 1998, I worked as a Project Editor at the Newspaper Agency Corporation (now MediaOne). I have enjoyed working as a freelance editor, writer, and graphic designer for over 15 years.
I DESIGN yearbooks, promotional material (billboards, banners, posters, programs, bookmarks, fliers, postcards, e-book covers, etc.), business cards, invitations for parties, weddings, bridal and baby showers, along with holiday and all-occasion cards. I WRITE book reviews, back blurbs for books, articles, press releases, cover letters, talks/speeches, poems for all-occasions, along with inspirational gift books, children's books and chapter books. I EDIT school papers, business letters, back blurbs for books, cookbooks, instruction manuals, novels, chapter books, and short stories.
I have a love for writing, an eye for design, and an obsessive nature to edit everything I see. But the real joy in my work comes when the finished product brings both satisfaction and inspiration to my customers/readers.
