WOW. I got lucky. We are a total start-up, a pre-startup really. Sooz jumped in, grasped the idea, helped research, built our site, set up our tools, took command of social media, helped design the product, edited, used her network to refer several other people we worked with (design, UX, coding, hoola hoopers), project managed, supported advisors and clients, ran operations, and did this all hours because we are in 5 time zones, and all in a high-energy breathless way, just like this sentence.

I hired Susan to help me with a recent editing project. I really enjoyed the process of working with her. She was kind, knowledgable and extremely helpful. She went through my project with a fine tooth comb and offered wonderful feedback. She was also great about getting back to me in a timely manner. I would highly recommend her.



My adventure with digital marketing + content + community began in 1999. I love what I do and enjoy working with clients as colleagues.
