Build your brand and online visibility. Drive traffic to your website. Convert visitors into subscribers, leads, and sales.

I’m Michelle, a SmartBlogger-certified content marketer based in the Detroit metro area.

For effective content marketing, you need more than the right words. You need the right competitive strategy. I can help get you there.

Jon Morrow and the SmartBlogger team equipped me with the skills to write reader-friendly content capable of ranking on the first page of Google's search engine results pages.

I specialize in long-form content—blog posts, articles, white papers, lead magnets, and email newsletters—in these areas:

  • Health & wellness
  • SaaS
  • Digital marketing
  • Entrepreneurship & small business
  • Lifestyle

As a word nerd from way back, it was probably inevitable that I gravitated to a writing career. My shelves are filled with writing guides, and I subscribe to many, many blogs. I read a book a week on average and even listen to grammar podcasts.

And I’m a bit of a health nut. Plant-based eating, weight training, yoga, meditation—I’m into all of it. I have 7+ years of diverse experience in the health and wellness industry, doing everything from personal training to corporate communications to writing blog posts for dentists and chiropractors.

My interest in technology led me to enroll in a web development boot camp. Around the time we got to JavaScript, I realized what I always knew deep down—I’m much better with words than code. Now I stick to writing about tech rather than attempting to create it.

My four-bullet bio:

  • 10+ years of experience in communications—B2B and B2C.
  • Additional certifications in SEO keyword research and SEO writing.
  • Bachelor’s degree in communications & digital media.
  • Journalism training/experience.
