ABOUT CAROLYN

As a Marketing Content Writer and Strategist for 15+ years, I put businesses and nonprofits on the map with winning proposals and other compelling communications.
 
In 2015, I started my own business because I love helping mission-driven organizations accomplish their goals through education and outreach–whether it’s winning a new project, reaching new audiences or publishing new content.
 
Previously, I was the first-ever full-time marketer at 3 firms in the AEC industry (architecture, engineering and construction). Before that, I graduated from Wellesley College and from Campaign Corps: a Project of EMILY’s List.
 
From hundreds of winning proposals, I’ve helped AEC firms and others win prime and subcontracting opportunities, including huge infrastructure projects for Tappan Zee Bridge, Newark Airport, Dulles Metro Rail, parks and campuses. I’ve also led a variety of smaller project wins for businesses and nonprofits, including offices, interior fit-outs, consulting and educational programs.  
 
In addition, I’ve written and edited numerous articles, newsletters, award submissions, brochures, websites and other content online and in print. I’m very proud that I’ve helped thousands of people learn about awesome leaders, groups, opportunities and events. 
 
Over 15+ years, I’ve provided marketing, writing, editing and consulting for a variety of organizations, including:
  • Businesses: B2B and professional services providing engineering, architecture, construction, planning, real estate, technology, security, consultants and other services
  • Nonprofits in advocacy, cultural and educational fields
  • Sole proprietors and other small organizations
  • Leaders and departments at mid-sized and large organizations

TESTIMONIALS

I had the pleasure of working with Carolyn on strategic communications and marketing for Columbia University’s Department of Electrical Engineering.

She has the ability to listen well and to provide the specific needs of the client.

I couldn’t recommend her more to anyone who is looking for a thoughtful partner who cares about the success of your business.”    Rosa Fernández, Columbia University
