About Laura

Hello there! I’m Laura, a Rocky Mountain native, mom of an epic, awesome son (in his words. I agree!) and step-mom to a beautiful and talented graphic designer.

I’m a content writer for small and micro businesses and publications.  Writing blog posts and feature articles on nearly anything are what I love to do! It doesn’t matter if it is fun, serious, or informational, they similarly bring joy in writing.

Boutique Owner to Writer

My background is in product management, concept design, and retail.

In 1998, I entered into business for myself and several years later opened a women’s boutique in downtown Colorado Springs. I’ve since closed the boutique and my years of experience as a proprietor coupled with my new-found love of writing proved to be the perfect situation to become a content writer.

Blogs build relationships

As a small business owner myself, I understand that your time is  s t r e t c h e d   t h i n  between all the demands and responsibilities of proprietorship.  Blogs are an important part of any business but are usually the one thing that is put on the back burner due to a lack of time. 

I completely understand and have a passion for helping those who invest so much of their heart into their business by creating compelling content that generates interest among potential customers and strengthens the relationship between you and your “tribe”.

Industries I have written for include:  Real Estate, Neurofeedback, Finances, Health & Wellness, Small business, and a lifestyle magazine.
