Kelsey is a detail-oriented writer and copy editor who helps organizations engage their audiences with high-quality, professional communications. From a young age, she has been captivated by narrative and its ability to inform, persuade, and inspire. Kelsey has been writing since she was in elementary school, when she would painstakingly type out neighborhood newsletters, and in the intervening years, that passion has turned into a career writing and editing engaging copy for both public- and private-sector clients.

Kelsey specializes in scientific and other academic writing and editing, making sure that even the most in-depth manuals, studies, and reports are readable and clear. Notably, she was one of a small team of editors who edited the second installment of the White House's Quadrennial Energy Review, published in January 2017.

Kelsey's expertise also includes shorter marketing copy and other digital content: writing reviews, press releases, blogs, social media, and more. She has worked extensively with government clients as a communications contractor, and she currently works in digital marketing for a major restaurant chain. Whether she's drafting a news article or editing a manuscript, Kelsey believes that attention to detail and audience awareness are key to transforming words into vehicles of influence. Don't settle for less.
