“Just write like you are having a conversation with someone,” her dad used to tell her when she found herself with writer’s block. Little did he know the advice he used to give her when she was in grade school would lead to Kristy’s passionate career as a freelance writer. Her quick wit paired with her ability to turn a heavy topic into something light and intriguing has led her to work with clients around the globe. And she doesn’t take that lightly. “Writing to inform people is more than just facts and figures. To me, it’s about connecting on an emotional level, getting a reader to say, ‘wow, that is exactly how I am feeling or what I am experiencing,’ and then providing hope for them in discovering alternative options. I love making the world a better place through helping others become enlightened.” Kristy’s work can not only be seen online, but she is also the co-author of the book, “The Susan Southerland Secret: Personality Marketing to Today’s Bride,” a book that was written in her previous career as an event and wedding consultant and that can be found in brick and mortar stores. It even used in university course work. Her extended marketing and writing experience includes wedding planning work with the Walt Disney World Resort and The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company.
