Hey there! I’m Kaitlyn. I’m an award-winning Midwestern journalist.

You have a story. I’ll help you share it.

About Me

I’m a freelance journalist writing about pets, marketing, and books. I work with small publications and websites that have millions of visitors each month. 

Whether it’s profiling a black pug promoting literacy, or encouraging people to use a done list, I tell stories that educate people.

I graduated from Ball State University, where I studied magazine journalism and sociology. I’ve written for the American Kennel Club, Betterpet, LOCALiQ, Contra, and many other publications.

When I’m not writing, I’m curled up with a romance novel. In between deadlines, I share a weekly newsletter of opportunities for freelancers.

If you’re ready for smarter storytelling, I’d like to help.


Editorial Content

Content drives connection. I deliver high-quality interesting copy on tight deadlines. I write SEO-friendly journalistic features, profiles, Q&As, news stories, and more. I’m also available for live event coverage, fact-checking, and transcription. My rates begin at $800 for articles.


I am happy to speak about freelancing and finding legitimate freelance clients. My rates begin at $1,500. I will speak to individual college classes for free over Zoom/Google Meet.

Blog Posts

With years of crafting compelling copy under my belt, I can develop sponsored articles for your brand. I can develop blog posts complete with research and interviews to bolster your website’s credibility to help your business stand out.


I can help you engage your audience with ghostwritten blog posts. I do charge an additional 20% fee because my byline and website aren’t connected to the project.
