COPYWRITER & COPY EDITOR

Need a great copywriter or editor?

Do you want to:

Then, of course!

I can write great copy for you or expertly edit your work.

I can write great copy for you
or expertly edit your work.

I have been:

  • An advertising copywriter both in ad agencies and on the client side
  • A writer and editor for companies including Google and HP, as well as a book publisher

I am:

  • Excellent at clarifying and simplifying words, sentences, and paragraphs, as well as offering developmental editing suggestions
  • Especially interested in working on articles, blogs, marketing copy, nonfiction books, and web sites
  • Known for correcting grammar errors and typos that others often miss
  • Straightforward and candid with copyediting suggestions
  • Deadline driven, often completing projects ahead of schedule
  • Personable, upbeat, warm, and easy to work with

Fun facts

  • When I was eight, I told my mom I wanted to write books to help girls. As an adult, I fulfilled that dream, authoring a series of five nonfiction books geared toward helping preteen and teen girls build their self-esteem and get inspired to achieve their goals.
  • I started my career as an author by working on books about protecting the environment. For Halloween, I was the solid waste crisis (a giant pile of garbage).
  • I sometimes can’t resist correcting the grammar of certain people (like my brother) when they’re talking. It drives me nuts when someone uses lay when they mean lie, and when they use I as a direct object (as in She texted her and I.)

Client comments

As a content strategist at Google, Catherine wrote and managed UI text, Help Center content, and Partners Exam questions for multiple feature areas of AdWords. . . . she demonstrated her ability to synthesize feedback from multiple stakeholder teams while maintaining the momentum necessary to meet deadlines ahead of schedule. When I came to Catherine with information about an upcoming product release, I was delighted when she accurately identified and proposed edits to all affected exam content with a very tight turnaround. Besides being a critical team player, Catherine is a solution-oriented oasis of positive energy—a real joy to work with.
