Experience

Summary

I began freelancing 5 years in the corporate world. My services evolved out of necessity, as I realized that all of my clients were struggling with the same thing: they have amazing content ideas by not enough time to make them a reality.

Work history

Website Optimization for Kyo Morishima Photography
The team behind Kyo Morishima photography came to me because their website had been pieced together and, to use their words, was a "Frankenstein" of content. I developed a site map which we used to edit, streamline and ultimately optimize the site.
Wee Talkers Digital Product Creation
Carly came to me wanting to create PDFs for a digital product she had envisioned. We clicked right away and I helped her realize the vision, creating 26 alphabet pages in Adobe Illustrator for her. I can't wait to see how they propel her business forward!
Body Balance Email Marketing
Tara reached out looking for help creating a bi-weekly email newsletter for fitness studio members. She provides me point-form content, which I edit, format and design. Together we have seen excellent results (80%+ open and 25% click through rates!).
Cabby's Coffee Website Updates & Email Marketing
Cabby reached out for help updating his website to reflect his company's new brand. I executed the rebrand and helped him to optimize the products in his online store. He has stayed on as a client, and I now take care of his monthly marketing email.

Body Balance Email Marketing

I create bi-weekly emails to send to members of Body Balance. Tara, the owner, supplies me with the content she'd like to include in point-form using a custom G Suite template that I created. I edit, optimize, format, preschedule and run analytics on each email, and design custom graphics as needed.

Cabby's Coffee Website

Cabby's Coffee had just undergone a rebranding, but their website hadn't been updated to match! I went through and updated all of the brand colours, fonts and graphics. From there, I optimized and organized products on his online shop.

Wee Talkers Digital Product Creation

Carly reached asked for my help designing a digital product. She is an SLP, and wanted to offer alphabet pages that would encourage language development. We arrange a consultation so she could explain her vision and we clicked right away! I created 26 PDFs using Adobe Illustrator.

Kyo Morishima Website Audit

Janna Morishima reached out to me for help streamlining and updated her website, which she described as a "Frankenstein" of content, created over the span of 10 years. I provided a custom site map and strategic recommendations for optimization, which I then implemented in WordPress.
