It's me, Whit!
I'm a freelance content marketing writer and social media strategist based in Atlanta, Georgia.
I love writing, researching, and traveling through space and time; and content marketing allows me to do all three!
I transform complex information into everyday language while helping clients deliver value that builds trust and solves problems.
My clients include global education, health and wellness, technology, lifestyle, business, and marketing brands.
It Was All a Dream!
I've always been a writer. As a child, I was known as a bookworm, and it was a fair bet that if I didn't have my head in a book, I was feverishly outlining a new story or poem. However, I didn't want to commit to a lifetime of writing books or being a professor.
Unsure how I could make a living as a writer I turned to my second love, helping people. Within two years of earning my bachelors degree, I had a leadership role in a global organization. For the next 7 years, I worked full-time; acquiring further experience in education, healthcare for communities, nonprofits, business/team development, and communications.
I scratched my writing itch with in-house projects and freelance writing assignments. Whether it was developing health-technology stat sheets for advocacy groups and decision makers or creating a lesson plan for a youth education project, empowering others to act was at the core of every project.
Still, I felt torn. I was doing fulfilling work, but it wasn't my passion.
Then life happened. A turn of events led me to content marketing on a full-time basis, and soon I realized that I was living both my dreams of being a writer and helping people. Mind. Blown.

You know me as Whitney, But My Clients Call Me Superwoman.
These days I think of myself as the Clark Kent(a) of content marketing; I nerd out during the day, following SEO and social media trends and analyzing metrics. At night I put on my cape and crank out goal-driven content that builds trust and authority.
My superpower is developing long-term relationships with my clients. I aim to create a professional and friendly experience that will make you want to work with me. I write until you’re satisfied and quickly answer questions and feedback. I go above and beyond because I’m passionate about my work and seek to get better with each project.
Furthermore, I have a Bachelors Degree in Communication and Culture, a Masters Degree in Administration and Management, and I am proficient in InDesign and Photoshop; with intermediate skills in digital photography (DSLR).
Other things to know:
I am a baby yogi, and my favorite pastime is convincing unexpecting suckers to attend hot yoga with me (enter at your own risk).
My favorite vacation is a week-long trip that I take to Jamaica, where I teach literacy to primary school youth.
I am very humble unless discussing my Alma Mater, Howard University or my hometown of St. Louis, MO.
I hoard book titles, and I have a favorite book from almost every genre. My goal is to read or listen to at least one book a month.
I am fluent in text-lingo, emoji, gifs, memes, Black Twitter, BRAVOtv, and food.
Most people binge on Netflix shows; I binge on podcast episodes and documentaries.
I love social media and birthed my nonprofit, Hello, My Name is KING from an Instagram campaign.
I hope you're as excited as I am to grow your brand!
