Writing all day, every day.

I'm a (copy)writer and communications specialist based in the Comox Valley. I help clients frame their stories to catch the media's eye, refine their language to make it more accessible and inclusive, and launch consistent and unique communications campaigns across digital and traditional media.

Read more about my services on my other website, paraphrased.ca.

When I'm not writing for clients, I'm writing for myself. I wake up at 5AM every day (!!) to stare bleary-eyed at the computer screen and summon the muse. I'm currently working on a culty mystery novel set in a small town on Vancouver Island, so send (metaphorical) creepy vibes my way.

 
About me
_maillieable _tpoppenhouse 📸🥂_edited_edited.jpg

I was raised in the Comox Valley on the unceded traditional territory of the K'ómoks First Nation. I lived in Victoria, Vancouver, the Loire Valley, Bonn, Stockholm and Berlin, but home beckoned in 2018 and I haven't looked back. I have a BA (European Studies) and an LL.M. (International Human Rights Law) and over ten years of public relations, marketing and communications experience under my belt.

I love transforming complicated messages into easily digestible content that people actually understand.

 

 I write to democratize information

 

I've ghostwritten speeches for the Foreign Minster of Germany and written white papers for an Artificial Intelligence technology firm. I've field organized for a Democratic congressional hopeful and done video reporting for the local paper. I've managed an online community of over 3 million scientists and designed social media campaigns for small grassroots organizations.

We could probably find ways to spruce up your communications, so let's talk.
