WRITERS,

DESIGNERS,

CODERS, AND

PLANNERS.

Yes, we write content for companies.

But there’s much more to it than that. We invest the time to build ongoing relationships with our clients. You’ll notice right away that we are committed to understanding your business, your goals, and your unique voice. And we actively stay in touch. Why? One reason: to craft excellent content for your organization.

Good content builds new relationships and strengthens existing ones. Good content talks to your current clients and brings in the Big 3: repeat business, additional business, and referrals. Current clients are more likely to keep continue buying from you, purchase additional products or services, and refer business to you. Good content also makes your website sticky and keeps prospects on your site longer. Good content is exactly what social media needs to be effective. Good content enjoys a high ROI.Good content is what Ghost Partner does best.

Content is Mobile Ready. Content is Design Responsive.

Our Business Model:

“Partner” is in our name for a reason. We only work with companies who partner with us to create ongoing content projects.

I started Ghost Partner after I sold my last company, BUZZ Publishing in 2006. When I started Ghost Partner I knew that engaging content for the web was the future, and serious businesses were going to need plenty of it. What I didn’t know was how Social Media was going to increase demand almost overnight. I was fortunate enough to know a group of really talented writers, designers, coders, and planners that I’ve worked with over the years. With this network, Ghost Partner can help companies use content, the new currency of the internet, to grow and be found. I am a Constant Contact “Authorized Local Expert”. Which means that Constant Contact has authorized me to go out and preach the gospel of Email, Social and Web marketing. that Ghost Partner is Accredited Solution Provider with Constant Contact.I graduate from Indiana University as English major in the haze of the late 80s. I have been married for 26 years and have 3 unruly children.

Growing up in the tech world, I’ve had the privilege of working with the industries’ finest. During my seven years with MindSpring/EarthLink, I served as Senior Manager of Marketing Services (later as Senior Manager of EarthLink’s Wireless Logistics) and contributor to the organization’s overall mission of bridging technology into everyday lives. I worked with folks who defined operational best practices, many still actively relevant in today’s leading tech companies. I truly enjoyed every minute of my DOT-COM bubble days!Before coming to Ghost Partner, I was the Director of Development for Vision Rehabilitation Services, a non-profit that serves blind or visually impaired individuals in more than 31 counties across Georgia. From soliciting partnerships with prospective corporations and local businesses to managing the agency’s donor relations and grant funding efforts, I built the agency’s fundraising event brand and developed a marketing plan that resulted in four consecutive years of measurable growth. Most recently, I worked as Operations Specialist for ForMomentum, a cause marketing agency based in Atlanta. Bringing my experiences in non-profit and corporate sectors to our team and clients here at Ghost Partner has been a wonderful, collaborative affair. I love working with our clients to ensure rock solid campaign productions that produce engaging results!My belief: Operations, procedures, analytics, and best practices – these are other pillars of marketing, circa NOW!

I’ve worked as a writer and editor for more than 25 years, and it’s been a varied, interesting, and fun career for me. I enjoy every aspect of content creation: researching, talking with clients, interviewing sources, drafting, editing, and, finally, delivering content that reflect each client’s message and voice. I have a master’s degree in English from Georgia State University (summa cum laude, if I may brag); and I am a complete grammar nerd, meaning that I text in complete sentences with proper punctuation at all times.I’m your garden-variety native Atlantan, but I married a Yankee from Maine in 1997. Despite the fact that he and I are complete opposites (or perhaps because of it), we have a great time together. We have two teenage daughters, an adorable and sometimes bossy corgi, Georgette, and a large Dutch warmblood (that’s a horse) named Walter. I watch almost zero TV, but I read all the time. I do not, under any circumstances, enjoy exercising.

As a child, I spun harrowing tales that left my neighborhood friends sleepless come bedtime. Despite their fears, the kids found themselves wanting more, and I developed a reputation for entertaining those around me. As I grew, you could find me onstage with the drama club or penning my own original plays for my family’s enjoyment. At the age of 12, I knew I wanted a career in television. After graduating from the University of Florida’s College of Journalism and Communications, I worked for many years in post-production as both a project manager and writer/producer for major cable networks, including Turner Entertainment. When my first child was born, I left all the glitz and glamour for diaper duty. But I never stopped writing. Through a series of gigs, I landed at Ghost Partner. Here I create content that sets our clients apart. In my free time, I enjoy hitting the road in my running shoes as well as straying off the beaten path all around the world. However, no matter where I roam, putting pen to paper is where I feel most at home.

Ever tried kimchi? For the last two years I’ve had more than my fair share. I spent my senior year of college in Seoul, South Korea developing my skills in international business and marketing. Oh, I also taught myself Korean. After I graduated from Valdosta State University (International Business Major), I returned to South Korea for one more year and worked as an English Teacher to a group of adorable Korean children. (Did I mention that I also studied Japanese for three years?) Now, I have returned to the US, so I can shock and amaze the world with my content design. My experiences through internships, jobs, and boring Sundays have given me a wide variety of skills and abilities. The more you get to know me, the more surprises I’ll have for you. I have lived in Georgia for most of my life, and I live in Roswell with my fiancé. I am a K-Pop and K-Drama guru, and I steal the stage at karaoke.

I am an Atlanta native who was writing before I could walk. The printed, spoken and digitized word is my stock in trade, and I have plied my trade to engage widely diverse target audiences on an even wider diversity of topics. Feature articles, blogs, landing pages, websites, email campaigns, collateral, sales literature, direct response — I do it all. The rhythm of words and their meaning hold an enduring fascination for me, and as a professional writer, editor, journalist and content developer, I continually strive to harness their power to educate, motivate, illuminate and ultimately inspire action.

I always knew that design and business would have a big impact on my life; it just took a while to figure out. It started with my first branding project at age 14, a logo for my skateboard company that I ran off on my dad’s mimeograph machine. Didn’t change at the University of Tennessee where my art professor kept telling me, “be more conceptional, not so commercial.” Or my first business acquisition at age 22, Universal Printing Company, where I set up the area’s first desktop publishing lab and was a beta tester for computer design programs Pagemaker and Digital Darkroom.

But all of this started to gel after I was promoted from Art Director to Marketing and Communications VP of CyberFlix, a computer game developer. We published the top-selling PC game of 1996, “Titanic: Adventure Out of Time,” which became an international hit. After that, I hit Hollywood, marketing visual effects house Giant Studio’s proprietary motion capture technology to blockbusters like Lord of the Rings, The Day After Tomorrow, and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Then came family. I settled down in historic Roswell, threw out a marketing and graphics shingle, opened a couple of restaurants along the way — Nirvana Cafe and Grill and Fortuneberry: Smoothies and Wraps — and then closed them down, too. I stuck with the graphics part but never stopped dreaming up businesses, opening Mojo Vinyl Records a few years ago. Never stop dreaming…

I have the dubious distinction of being the oldest member of the Ghost Partner team. I wish that made the smartest or most talented, but alas—or fortunately—I’m lucky enough to work with people who all excel at what they do. I’ve been writing about technology since before the Commodore 64 and the first IBM-PCjr were introduced. I first wrote for print publications and then websites (PC Magazine, Barron’s, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine, and a whole lot of others that are long gone). As I recall, the boss asked me in 2007, “Hey, do you know anything about QuickBooks?” I’ve been a Ghost Partner contributor and fan ever since. I envy my co-workers in Atlanta during the winter; I live in St. Paul, MN, with my husband, two cats, and two dogs of my favorite breed (rescue).
