I’m Carolyn, an entrepreneur and writer who consults purpose-driven companies big and small on how to connect with their communities and target audiences. I help them clarify their goals, branding, and strategy; and I create campaigns, copy, and content. I believe in powering ambitious, world-changing ideas with creativity and collaboration.

Are you looking for clarity, copywriting, digital strategy, or a good old-fashioned brainstorm?

What else?

Hanging out on the internet! This is an extra good idea if you like seeing links to heady articles and pictures of homegrown flowers and vegetables. 

And if all of that sounds great, subscribe to updates from Carolyn-land.
