Great work speaks for itself….and my portfolio speaks volumes.

My name is Nancy Pekala and I specialize in web content strategy, editorial and social media. Whether crafting a web content strategy, launching a magazine, writing a feature article or using social media to connect with customers, my work gets results. Go ahead. Take a look around. While you’re here, take a moment to read my blog, view my gallery or just say hello. And if you’d like to work together, drop me a line. Thanks for stopping by.
