Writing. As a journalist, freelance writer and blogger, Jill's services also include the writing, editing and placement of opinion editorials, blog posts, press releases, project reports, tweets, and other traditional and new media materials.
Web Design Consultation. Websites should be both beautiful and functional. Your main site, Twitter page, Tumblr, YouTube channel and the rest of your online tools are the face of your organization, and they should send a clear visual message about who you are. Jill works with designers and developers to meet both your aesthetic and usability goals, using her eye for design to assist clients in developing an original "look" and a compelling visual brand.
