I’m a modern-day freelance writer who strategically uses digital media to tell stories that engage visitors and enhance their vacation and education experiences. My passion for storytelling about local parks and a lifetime of fun family nature travel resulted in the founding of FunOrangeCountyParks.com.

I understand the importance of shareable content, the craft and value of SEO, keyword focus, authentic engagement, #hashtags, graphics that fit overall branding, superior photography, and video creation in multiple formats for multiple platforms. I simultaneously address all of these strategic concerns for outdoor destinations, education providers and nonprofits seeking custom content or coaching in content marketing/social interpretation.

I have yet to meet another Content Marketer who is also a Certified Interpretive Guide (CIG) by the National Association for Interpretation (NAI) which gives me some of the same training as park rangers or interpretive specialists who provide nature programs to the public.

I’m committed to creating superior media assets which achieve strategically defined goals for clients.

I’m particularly interested in helping you market family-friendly nature experiences¬†like national parks, state parks, nature centers, visitor centers, restaurants and hotels near nature areas, and the many hiking and camping opportunities for¬†families.

But I am also a good match for new bloggers, small businesses starting out on social media, or anyone who is looking to reach their goals through digital or online strategies.
