Why choose me as your food-tech writer?
I AM A TURNKEY CHOICE FOR MY CLIENTS’ PROJECTS.
I know the food industry.
For over 20 years I have worked in and around the industry – the sourcing, developing, processing, distributing and retailing of foods. I’ve prepared promotional materials, presentations, business plans, manuals, funding applications and submissions for regulatory approval. Currently my interests are in healthy/functional foods, food innovations and advocacy issues. My learning curve is steep.
I CRAFT MY WORK FOR MY AUDIENCE.
I know what to write and how to write on food-related topics.
My work has covered focused topics such as ingredient functionality and broad topics such as food innovation. I have researched products and markets, preparing materials consistent with a product’s branding for those markets. I understand, especially from my teaching experience, what attracts and keeps audience attention.
I OFFER COMPREHENSIVE, FRESH AND INSIGHTFUL CONTENT.
I bring perception, clarity and creativity to a project.
My diverse experience in the food industry, government, academics and consulting provides me a unique perspective. I can offer insights from the customer’s viewpoint and target to their needs. I can cut through the clutter and inject creativity into the content.
I CAN BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN TECHNICAL AND BUSINESS WRITING
I have the knowledge and training to handle the project.
I hold a BSc. in Food Science and Technology and a MSc. in Plant and Soil Science/Food Science minor. After several years in the food industry, I obtained an MBA, focusing on industrial marketing and market research. I have taught post-secondary courses in food science and business programs and prepared and delivered various industry seminars.
