Hi! I'm Sarah, a copywriter driven by the power of storytelling to captivate and inspire.

In a world where content is currency, every word is a valuable investment. I understand the importance of crafting compelling and effective content that not only engages audiences but also drives meaningful results.

Crafting Words That Connect

With over a decade of experience in the industry, I've been fortunate to interview incredible individuals and write pieces from across the country. From Grammy-nominated musicians to award-winning preservationists and top-rated breweries, I've had the privilege of sharing their stories with the world through my writing.

I managed and contributed to Two Lanes, Mike Wolfe's (American Pickers) travel blog, steering over 300,000 subscribers down America's Main Streets, highlighting hidden gems and promoting heritage tourism. Through my travel guides, readers were able to experience an immersive and memorable adventure, woven together with the rich history, culture, and unique experiences.

As a content writer and editor for Next Glass, I wrote for four of their solution suites, including Untappd for Business, Ollie Order, Ollie Ops, and Hop Culture. My work reached audiences in over 175 countries, establishing me as a recognized voice in the craft beer community.

With a portfolio spanning a decade of fascinating interviews, explorations of noteworthy locations, and captivating content, my passion for storytelling has only grown stronger. 

Take a look at my work by exploring my featured articles below.
