Why Me?

You have deadlines, budgets, and writing projects piling up. Sure, it’s great to have an engineer who can understand information…but these projects require so much more than just understanding them.

Not to worry. I’m not just an engineer.   

I went to law school.

You may have heard it. You may have said it. “Engineers can’t write.” And it’s true that some engineer’s can’t write.

But, you don’t make it very far in law school without knowing how to write–a lot.

And most of my projects required me to explain complicated issues to non-technical audiences. Yet simplifying didn’t mean dumbing down. Rather, I distilled complex topics to make them clear and easy to understand.

So not only can I understand your products and services, I can also translate them into relatable marketing materials. Your engineers don’t need to spend valuable time trying to educate a writer…or trying to write materials themselves.

I sold ideas.

I’ve spent my career explaining projects to politicians, reviewing agencies, and community members. But I was never simply explaining a project. I was also trying to gain support.

I addressed their questions and provided sound, logical proof to justify their buy-in…the same kind of sound, logical proof you need to show your customers to earn their business.

You don’t need to worry that I don’t “get” sales. I’ve spent two decades honing a clear, logical, and persuasive style of communication that will resonate with your customers’ engineers and non-technical decision-makers.

Kristen helped us see and think as a prospective client would see and think. I highly recommend Kristen to anyone that needs similar expertise.”

I’m a project manager.

I’ve managed multi-million dollar projects so I understand the importance of timelines, critical paths, and cost controls. And I’m skilled at juggling multiple projects and teams while maintaining schedules and budgets.

You can rest assured that my projects will be delivered on time and within the agreed-upon terms, without needing to hold my hand.
