what I do

I help small businesses and non-profits build better relationships with their customers and stakeholders through excellent content.

The best copy tells the truth about your product and is tailored to resonate with your audience.


More, longer words don’t always translate to better sales. A stronger brand identity and deeper relationships with your customers and supporters do.


I’ve been honing my editing skills for over 15 years now. I’d love to put them to use on your behalf. I am your final set of eyes on all major documents.

Grant Writing + Reporting

Need someone to conceptualize, write, and apply for a grant or looking for someone to do final editing before it is submitted?

"I worked closely with Laurel for four years and in that time she proved to be a meticulous editor, creative copywriter, and a persuasive grant writer with an award rate of 100%.
