Legal writer at TermsFeed.

I am a freelance content writer with a passion for breaking down legal information so that it is educational, intriguing, and accessible. I specialize in simplifying complicated legal topics–such as which disclaimers to include in your legal policies and the impact of new privacy legislation on small businesses–so that you can easily apply the information to your company. When I'm not working to explain jargon and demystify dense topics, I'm either editing my paranormal fantasy WIP, practicing yoga, or hitting the beach with my family.
