My company, Narrative Solutions, LLC, specializes in clear, engaging content. I’ve helped several companies, foundations, and other clients tell their stories to a broader audience. I work with several associates who are seasoned journalists and authors from the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto. Narrative Solutions offers a variety of editorial services, including articles, OpEds, web copy, and journalistic reports. I’ve also ghost-written and edited books for clients including non-profit executives, physicians, chefs, and academics. I’m skilled at finding the most compelling story, structuring narratives, distilling a lot of complicated information into friendly, readable stories, and making dull prose lively.
I have expertise in the realms of medical writing, women’s health, memoir, personal essay, opinion pieces, and education. I help my clients focus on their message and cut through a lot of material to get to the heart of their stories. I listen to my clients and make the pieces I write for them to reflect their voice and values. I’ve taken material I don’t initially understand much about–say, agile pod software theory or monoclonal antibodies–and by the time I absorb it, I can turn it into something simple and engaging to read. My goal is always to make whatever you’d like to publish as appealing as possible to the audience you’d like to reach. I’m also a stickler about perfect grammar and spelling, so you’ll get very clean copy from me, along with cheerful revisions.
I have developed custom workshops for various groups to help them improve their communications skills, including with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (how to write better gallery text) and Roche Pharmaceuticals (digital storytelling).
I’m particularly interested in clients who are passionate about their projects and about the impact that what they are doing and communicating has on the world, whether in the realms of medical discoveries, global health, innovative education, healthy eating and farming, or environmental stewardship.
I have an extensive network of other writers, editors, photographers, and videographers to help you tell your story in the media that makes most sense.
Some of my clients include:
