Hi, I’m Becky. I’m a word nerd.
I help established B2Bs share their message by writing compelling content that educates, inspires, and activates their target market.
I also help new entrepreneurs feel more confident in their writing and their business by providing fun and practical education and coaching.
I’m one of those rare people who knew from an early age just what she’d do when she grew up—and then actually followed through on it. I always wanted to be a writer. It started with reading; I devoured historical nonfiction in elementary school and even wrote book reports just for fun, not for school.
It’s hard to believe I was never stuffed in a locker…
In high school, I was editor of the newspaper. In college, I again worked my way to the top of the masthead, and also interned for The St. Louis Journalism Review. After graduation, I moved to California to work at a small daily newspaper. It only took a year for me to realize, however, I’m far too Midwestern to pay West Coast rent.
My return to St. Louis brought a two-year stint in marketing for an education nonprofit. On a whim, I applied to Better Homes & Gardens (the largest-circulation magazine in the country at the time) and, much to my surprise, got the job. After five years at BHG and its specialty publications, I decided to strike out on my own as a freelance writer. Who wouldn’t want to work in PJs?
That was 12 years ago, and I continue to grow and expand my business. My work on consumer and trade magazines led to providing web and print content for large, established B2Bs. I also offer coaching for small business owners and bloggers who can’t afford my 1:1 writing services, as well as facilitated mastermind groups. [Want the whole scoop on my professional background?

When I’m not working, I’m probably with my husband and our kiddo, Gus. I’m a Green Bay Packers owner, a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals fan, an occasional runner and frequent beer drinker, and a Golden Girls enthusiast. When I have time and energy, I also blog at Cooking With Vinyl, which pairs my passions for cooking and listening to LPs. I have five tattoos, hate cantaloupe, love donuts, and will probably never understand people who choose the Rolling Stones over the Beatles.
Maintain Balance. Prioritize Quality. Be Creative. Have Fun.
Remain Authentic. Never Stop Learning. Educate Others.
