Hi, my name is Annie and I moved to France with my husband and kids after
we lost our jobs. Now I'm an aspiring writer, freelance digital content
strategist and Wordpress website creator who works remotely.

Let me share with you how we did it

I’m a freelancer with an assortment of delightful services.

Whatever your skill-set, you probably already know you can’t do everything yourself (without killing yourself or sacrificing your personal happiness). Even if you could do it all, sometimes it’s just better to hand off a job or task to someone or ask for some help so you can have more time to focus on more important things like like growing your business or have time to enjoy the fruits of your labour. Other times, you just need a little help from someone who can fast track your goals.

That’s where I come in!

Think of me as a“Swiss Army Knife” for your digital content, website and online needs who just happens to be a French sabbatical advocate. 

For over 15 years, I’ve worked in a variety of cross functional business and management roles for large companies like Motorola to small software companies and star-ups. All the while, following my passion for internet related work.

All this means is I have a wide range of skills that I can put to use to help you with your website needs; from creating a new website and writing interesting articles to regular ongoing maintenance of your site.

Here is a brief summary of some of the things I can do for you.

Custom digital services like logo, WordPress website creation, installation and maintenance. Photo manipulation.  Content strategy and article writing. I also do translations from French to English as well as “year in France consulting” geared towards families and professional. (See below for detailed explanations)

 If you want to see my past corporate experience than you should have a look-see at my official street cred at Linkedin.

Maybe you would like to do the same thing but you don’t have the time or maybe you just want a little help?  Whatever your reasons, I can put you on the fast track and help you achieve your goals faster than if you were to try to do it yourself.
