Working with words is just part of what she does; and loves. Finding the right voice and tone to connect businesses with their customers is another big part of the fun – along with researching, learning about new solutions, delving into the ins and outs of other industries and figuring out the ups and downs of the market too.

She's been at it for more than a decade; writing website content, blogs, marketing brochures and emails that reach the audience and prompt them to action. This is what lights her fire! #wordnerd

Here I am trying to build a brand and along comes Barb McGrath showing me how to focus growing that image! Wow, it has been a wild ride – each time we meet I learn something new I can apply. It is exciting and daunting, all at the same time. Barb is there each step of the way and slowly, I am learning what I need to know in order to build that brand.

Thank you Barb! You are so knowledgeable and also such an inspiration – marketing in the digital world is different. Yet, knowing that and working with the digital world are so very different when it comes to branding and marketing.
