As a writer and editor, I collaborate with businesses, brands, authors, and entrepreneurs–clients who need targeted, polished content to help them solve business problems or connect with audiences. 

I specialize in making complex or technical subjects understandable to a non-technical audience. I also work frequently with English translations of foreign books. My niches: B2B marketing, medical & health, technology, and leadership & management.

Content Writing

B2B & B2C • Websites • Blogs • Newsletters • Content for lead generation • E-learning


Nonfiction books • Blogs • Personal branding • Thought leadership • Professional bios


Books and professional documents • Developmental editing • Manuscript critique  

"Kristen had a wonderful ability to understand what I wanted to express and then write with clarity and intelligence. She also has a good grasp of working with medical and technical information, which makes her services even more valuable. My book turned out better than I could have imagined and I am thrilled with the result."

— Author, Bestselling Health Book
"Kristen worked with me on editing my manuscript (which was originally a collection of blogs) into a solid book. She was efficient, resourceful, and collaborative, and really served as a consultant in addition to editor. Kristen hooked into my message and target audience and worked with me on tightening up a manuscript I felt proud to deliver to the marketplace."
— Stacey Rosenfeld, PhD, Author, Does Every Woman Have an Eating Disorder? Challenging Our Nation’s Fixation with Food and Weight 


"Kristen was recommended to me as very knowledgeable, diligent and would get the job done to the customer’s complete satisfaction and this certainly was the case for me. Kristen was persistent in her probing questions to learn about my business for her best understanding in order to maximize the effectiveness of my website. She had the distinct ability to think as if she was in the business, which I believe was the key to its [the project’s] success."
