Principal • Content Consultant • Blog Coach
Hi. I’m Maia, an Alaska-grown, Milwaukee-transplanted creative content consultant with a background in journalism, advertising, public relations, social media and branding.
I started my career in print journalism at age 17. But it was when I hit publish on my first personal blog post in 2004 that I started taking control of my own voice. Now I work with companies and personal bloggers alike to help them do the same.
An experienced editor and award-winning columnist with a background in online news, I’ve also worked in marketing and advertising and taught college writing. As an executive at Alaska’s largest news organization, I built the first and only in-house custom sponsored content studio at any media company in the state. I’ve seen every side of the media business, from content creation to publication, marketing and outreach to sales and revenue. I’ve worked on successful projects and total failures. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that ultimately, when it comes to attracting real readers and having a meaningful impact, nothing matters more than the quality of your content.
Whether you’re a 24/7 news site or an individual blogger, at the end of the day, it all comes down to one simple question: Do you publish good content that people want to read? If the answer isn’t “yes”… nothing else matters.
My first love is writing. My second is working with writers like you to realize your creative potential — to find your voice — and help you feel confident in sharing your words with the world.
Let’s get started.
