Hey there, amazing service provider! Give me your wordy, technical or complex and I’ll raise it to punchy, powerful content that wins.  

With a winning mix of meaty questions, cool-headedness and the right amount of drama and heart, I help specialists and service based businesses shred the jargon, ditch the boring and powerfully showcase how they’re changing lives.  

I have a soft spot for tech-types, creators and innovators, and organisations doing good things for people and planet.




I’m all about well-written, well-researched, thoughtful (and kind) content. Not divisive soundbites or clickbaity snippets. It’s because I want your ideal clients to notice you, remember you and trust you. So, if you want people who read your case studies, blog, support pages and annual reports to feel like they can’t resist calling you to find out more, donate to your worthy cause, partner or work with you – let me help you with that.

Katie is a fantastic copywriter – she is flexible enough to write for a wide range of projects in a range of styles and tones, writes with accuracy requiring few revisions and provides good value for money. Excellent to deal with and highly recommended.

I chose to work with you as I wanted to support a sole trader and achieve a well-written product, with little work required from me.

You took ownership of the process, and I enjoyed having you with us in the office, as it felt like you were more connected to our cause and kaupapa.

I deeply appreciated having a solid product to review and tweak. Your use of technology streamlined the process and kept momentum going. I like your writing style.

I would recommend your services to other organisations – I find you very good to work with.

Editing can seem boring, time-consuming and, let’s face it, sometimes painful. It can be hard to look at your work objectively and with a clear head, especially when you’re so invested in it. But it’s obvious to your readers when a document is still in the draft phase. I can fact-check, edit and proofread your academic, business or creative texts to get them to the beautiful, polished, and raring to be read phase.

I’m really happy that I’ve actually managed to write a book! Thank you so much for your wonderful work, it has made a significant difference to the way the book is coming along. I feel like the book has been substantially improved thanks to your work and your feedback over coffees.

As well as learning from your work, I have also learnt tonnes from our conversations together. I feel like, as an editor, you actually also offer a teacher/mentor service alongside your editing service. So don’t let this aspect of your gifting and business go unnoticed.
