Storytelling entrepreneur

I established Rhymes with Orange, LLC in April 2016 so I could tell more stories. I’m a good listener, a great writer and an outstanding editor.

I love to interview people and write about their work in research, science, health care, medicine, agriculture, animals, wildlife and conservation. Prior to focusing on writing and editing, I spent 25 years at The Ohio State University developing and executing communications, outreach and marketing plans for the Colleges Veterinary Medicine, Nursing, Medicine, and Mathematical and Physical Sciences, now part of the College of Arts and Sciences. MAPS, as we affectionately called it, included the Departments of Astronomy, Chemistry, Math, Statistics, Physics and Geological Sciences, now the School of Earth Sciences.

I have written white papers, grant proposals, articles, web stories, magazine features, speeches, video scripts, ad copy, instruction manuals, newsletters, and brochures.
