Beth has written free-lance for companies ranging from Fortune 100 to venture-funded startups and SMBs since 1987 after leaving Apple Computer. Her marketing writing is particularly effective because of her prior sales background. She was a commissioned account representative for Xerox and Shearson Lehman American Express, and joined Apple's field sales organization prior to being transferred to Apple's higher education marketing team. Direct (not retail) sales experience informs her copy with the ability to communicate effectively with prospects and customers at any stage of the sales cycle.

Her writing work spans sales, marketing, thought leadership, PR, advertising, and brand development messaging and copywriting. She is currently editing a book on technology leadership for a private client.
