ABOUT


WORDS MATTER.

These days, everyone and their MacBook can throw words at a Google Doc and call themselves a writer.

But when hundreds of thousands of new words are published online every day… when managers and recruiters are sifting through hundreds of resumes for a single position… when each one of us online is scrolling past multiple messages every second…

You can’t just slap some sentences together and hope they stand out.

You need someone who knows their way around the English language. Someone who’s been fiercely scribbling down ideas since she was six. Someone who cares about both substance and style, and combining the two in a way that grabs the right attention.

If you want seriously good writing, you need more than a seriously good writer. You need somebody who can deliver the right message to your audience so that you get what you want out of the words representing you and your brand.

And if you want to save yourself some time finding the perfect prose to achieve your goals…

YOU MIGHT NEED ME.


Writer, Speaker, Actor, Alone-in-my-car-Rapper… but you can call me Meag.

I’m a salty Atlantic Canadian millennial, destined to question the status quo so we can all build something better together. Placing words in pleasing and persuading ways? Getting in front of people and talking? Those are my jams.

My undergrad years were full of twists and turns: I’ve taken an intro course in practically everything. After starting out as a pharmacy student, almost a decade later I graduated at the top of my class with a Bachelor of Arts in English and (most of) a Creative Writing Diploma.

Along the way I’ve racked up over 17 years in the service industry. I can say, low-balling it, that I’ve interacted with well over 150,000 people in my life so far: all kinds of people, all kinds of situations. When I write or speak, all those interactions, experiences, ideas, and viewpoints give me a strong voice on the page or stage.

When you give me a goal for a piece of writing? My brain draws on three decades of life and learning to define the creative problem. Then, guided by your goal, I relish in crafting a creative solution that strategically communicates your message clearly and persuasively.

Because I’ll never stop absorbing the world around me, reading with an insatiable appetite, thinking constantly about language…

And a brain like that, like mine? It’s always hungry for new challenges.


There is no world, there are only six billion understandings of it. And if you change one person’s understanding of it… you’ve changed the whole thing.”
