Writing Samples

From travel articles and profiles to web copy and social impact storytelling, I draw on 15+ years of editorial and corporate communications experience. The result: insightful content that educates, inspires, and drives engagement.

My projects span various industries, including hospitality, health care, transit, sustainability, and agriculture. Great stories are the common thread.

Check out a few recent and favorite writing samples below. Looking for specific project types or themes? Ghostwriting contracts and NDAs keep some work out of this portfolio, but send me a note, and I’ll be happy to discuss ideas.

A standout contributor and an absolute pleasure to work with.

“During the five years we worked together, I could always count on Renee for compelling story ideas and engaging, thoroughly reported copy that was on time, hit assigned length, and was damn clean to boot.”

– Eric Moya, former destinations editor, Travel Weekly

Renee is that rare reporting and writing powerhouse.

“She uncovers offbeat characters and under-the-radar stories, communicates clearly (and oh-so-pleasantly), and files squeaky-clean copy promptly. Her descriptions are singular and dazzling, and she makes the creation of thoughtfully structured, well-paced, and absorbing stories appear easy. Renee has repeatedly made my job as an editor almost laughably easy. She’s truly a treasure of a freelancer.”

– Katie O’Reilly, adventure and lifestyle editor, Sierra Magazine

One of my go-to luxury lifestyle writers.

“In her work for Pebble Beach and GuestLife Monterey Bay magazines, Renee consistently captures the spirit of place and delivers the perfect balance of context and insider knowledge that makes her stories interesting, informative and, best of all, memorable.”

– Steven Biller, editorial director, Palm Springs Life
