An Austin copywriter helping hospitality pros to strut their stuff and prettify their P&L.

Why did you get into the hospitality business, anyway?

Maybe you imagined spending your afternoons wandering the restaurant, shaking hands with customers and basking in the glow of their happy faces.

Or maybe you envisioned evenings at the bar, bantering with regulars over a beer. 

Then you opened up shop, and the reality set in

If you’re like most other owners and operators of hospitality businesses, you have 12 hours of work to do and only 4 hours to do it. You’re buried under a mountain of staff shortages, supply orders, new tech, private events, and Yelp reviews. 

And why is everything always breaking??

With so much on your plate, you don’t have time to learn about using language to encourage loyal customers. Or article writing best practices for increased visibility. So when you need website content or email marketing? You DIY it and hope for the best.

Maybe it’s time to bring in a specialist instead.  

How about a full-time writer with 13 years of hospitality experience?

Hi. I'm Kate.

Hospitality people are my people. So I decided to write for them as a full-time gig. And while I may hang my hat in beautiful Austin, Texas, I work with businesses all over the U.S. and internationally.

I‘ve created content for:

    • restaurants
    • hotels
    • event venues
    • tourism boards
    • marketing agencies
    • PR firms
    • food brands
    • cannabis brands
    • product manufacturers
    • and more.

If it involves eating, drinking, or having a good time, I’m your gal!
