Lisa has a passion — and innate knack — for writing. Whether it's short or long, snappy or buttoned up, humorous or heartfelt, she can do it all.
She's had a hand in writing pretty much everything — poems, children's books, print and radio ads, newsletters, brochures, direct mail, SEO website content, product descriptions, press releases, articles, bios, video scripts... you name it, she's probably done it.
Did we mention Lisa has written a little bit of this and a little bit of that? She prefers the creative side — clever headlines with supporting content; thought-provoking prose that leaves you saying "Hmmm...", a twist of humor. But she also loves a challenge and venturing into new, undiscovered territory where she can stretch her manuscript muscles.
