I have worked with Cathie for several years and am impressed with her deep understanding of how to write with her audience in mind. She has created content for audiences from “mom bloggers” to food and healthcare writers to business audiences and has a knack for immediately distilling the key story idea into concise, attention-getting and effective content. On top of her writing skills, she is unusually responsive and quick to turn around my projects.
— Melinda Merrill, Director of Public Affairs, Fred Meyer (a Kroger company)
As editor of Metro Parent Magazine, I have found Cathie to be a talented writer who delivers well-written articles that both engage and inform her readers. She generates interesting story ideas, meets her deadlines and always maintains an upbeat attitude. It’s a pleasure working with her.
— Emily Puro, Editor, Metro Parent Magazine
I’ve hired Cathie to write several freelance articles for California Real Estate magazine. She is easy to work with and delivers her assignments on time, which is important in this business. Her stories are clean, well-written, and need very little editing. I’d highly recommend Cathie for other freelance writing work.
— Heather Skyler, Senior Editor, California Real Estate Magazine
From the first time I worked with Cathie at FireRocket, where she wrote content marketing articles for one of the agency’s key clients, I was impressed with her work ethic, communication and ability to carry on a professional and fun rapport. The decision to hire her as a freelance writer was an easy one. Her queries are thoughtful and she shows an authentic knack for understanding audience needs. Cathie’s stories are always a very light edit for me, which makes any editor’s job easy. They flow well, the sources are solid, and the information is always super practical and useful.
— Joy Keller, Editor, IDEA Fit
Cathie is a bright and energetic writer who can adapt the voice and writing style of each piece she writes to meet the clients’ needs. She’s able to juggle multiple interviews and projects, while staying on top of the details. It’s a pleasure to work with someone who understands the intricate layers of each project and who can deliver the goods on time.

Cathie made my job easier as I knew she would always deliver top quality content that was perfectly in line with our strategy and brand voice and always on time. Whatever the project — technical documents to consumer features — Cathie would be my top choice for a writer. She was a critical player for our case study program serving as the lead writer, and we trusted Cathie so much we had her work directly with our customers — which is a huge sign of confidence in my book. Cathie is a pleasure to work with and even our customers would tell me the same.
— Ried Elenich, Building Products Group, Owens Corning
For years, Cathie has been my go-to writer for case studies, newsletters, marketing pieces and any content that my clients or company has needed. I first engaged her to create content for my clients when I worked on the PR team at a communications agency. She was able to easily juggle projects that required her to adopt the buzzwords and voices of several niche industries. When I went to work for Daimler Truck Financial, I was delighted to have the opportunity to hire her again. She turns assignments around with amazing speed, delivering quality work under the highest of pressures and shortest of deadlines. Her interviews always yield interesting quotes and the resulting stories hit the target every time. I trust her to work directly and independently with my SMEs and look forward to every project with Cathie.
— Heidi Hall, Daimler Truck Financial
I purchased articles from Cathie for nearly a decade when I was editor of a community news section targeting readers in Clackamas County, Oregon. She always had spot-on ideas for her articles, executed them well and was completely reliable when it came to meeting deadlines. She clearly understood the mission of the section and aligned her stories to fit it. In addition, I truly enjoyed working with her. I would not hesitate to purchase more articles from her.
— Amy Wang, Editor, The Oregonian
Cathie has been a contributing writer for Red Tricycle for over a year. She continually impresses me with her wealth of ideas and the great family activities she discovers in Portland. Cathie takes her work seriously– she always meets her deadlines, takes constructive criticism with a smile, and is able to adapt her writing to meet Red Tricycle’s editorial brand and vision. I hope Cathie continues to contribute to Red Tricycle Portland for a long time!
— Erin Lem, Editorial Director, Red Tricycle
Cathie is able to turn around impressive writing projects on tight deadlines, with a tireless work ethic, a high degree of resourcefulness and a creative mind. She is wonderfully organized, reliable and positive. I’ve counted on her for numerous projects at OMSI, one of which entailed singlehandedly creating all of the writing content for a multi-page Portland Tribune special insert. Cathie proactively developed story ideas, gathered information, reached out to contacts, and drafted and finalized multiple stories, all in the timespan of just a few days! The end result was absolutely perfect and I am so thankful to be able to depend on such a great writing resource.
— Amita Joshi, Marketing, Oregon Museum of Science and Industry

Cathie’s writing is always a pleasure to read. Her quick wit and sometimes sarcastic tones make for a fun, light reading. However it’s her passion for writing that comes out in her pieces and really conveys the heart of the issues she covers. Always an enjoyable, and factual, read!
