How I can help you

I help grow my clients’ businesses through strategic and creative marketing, social media management, and copywriting. In my 25-plus years in communications, I’ve worked in various roles in corporate, non-profit, and higher education communications. After graduating from Michigan State with a degree in journalism, I started my career as a graphic designer for several newspapers before transitioning to writing and editing. I took these experiences to magazines, where I served as editor and art director of a business magazine before starting a parenting magazine. Now, I am the owner and principal strategist for Great Gus Marketing. In December 2020, I received a Master of Strategic Communication degree from Michigan State.
