Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

Valerie Schafer Franklin Headshot Atop the Elkhorn Valley Wind Turbine Geoff and Valerie Franklin Walnut Studiolo at Ardiri Winery

An experienced writer, small business owner, and project manager based in Portland, Oregon, I freelance, travel, consult on renewable energy development and co-manage our bootstrapped e-commerce brand of leather lifestyle goods called Walnut Studiolo with my husband, Geoff Franklin. 

Previously, I was a PMI-trained project manager for multi-million dollar wind energy projects at the third-largest wind energy developer in the country. Before that, I was a manager in the non-profit sector, working in community development and historic preservation. My schooling was in Anthropology. I have been a writer since I learned how to write. 

I have skills in project management, a head for marketing, a heart for writing, and grace under fire, so whatever it is, I can get 'er done.

When you're ready, shoot me an email, I'd love to chat about your project.
