About Carolyn Kohler

I am thrilled whenever a client achieves more success as a result of our work together. As a writer, I specialize in helping business professionals draw more of the clients they really want. I enjoy learning all about my clients – what excites them, what makes them really good at what they do, and why they love it. Then, I help them tell that story to the world.

Whether you need targeted website copy, a persuasive white paper, a blog post or any other type of written communication, I can be your voice. My expertise as an SEO writer can help get your website found by search engines like Google.

I have worked with hundreds of professionals and business owners, from attorneys and acupuncturists, to general contractors and computer forensics firms. My clients tell me that they appreciate my ability to simplify complex information, my talent for communicating what makes them exceptional, and my can-do attitude.

A Writer with a Business Focus

I grew up on a dairy farm in a small Ohio town that had more cows than people! I soon realized that milking cows was not going to be my future. My family moved off the farm when I was in high school, and my Mom opened an organic grocery store in our garage. That was long before most people in the area knew what organic food was, let alone its benefits. I sometimes wonder how much easier her life might have been if the Internet had been around, and she was able to more easily get the word out about her store. That’s why I am so passionate about helping my clients “get the word out” about what they offer.

After high school, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where I graduated from San Francisco State University with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and later earned a Masters in Business Administration. I honed my writing skills while working at several San Francisco-based corporations, including McKesson, Levi Strauss and Charles Schwab, where I managed large-scale information technology projects. I often found myself in the role of translating what my business partners wanted to my technical team members and, in turn, explaining highly technical concepts in layperson’s terms.

In 2005, I started my company, Website Wordsmith, so that I could use my writing and project management skills on behalf of business owners. What I especially love about what I do is helping my clients communicate what makes them exceptional to THEIR clients.

A Love for the Outdoors!

I currently live in Mill Valley with my husband, Tom. Whenever I am not writing website content or white papers, blogging or managing projects, I head outdoors to hike the hills and beaches of Marin County and the slot canyons of Utah. I also enjoy outdoor photography, bicycling, and watching brown pelicans skim over Richardson Bay.

I am a member of the Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce and Business Connections Chapter of Business Networking International in San Rafael.

I invite you to view my portfolio for examples of my writing and read my LinkedIn profile. You can also hear what my clients are saying on Yelp!
