Sometimes, you just get lucky. Sometimes, you pay attention to the arbitrary email that lands in your inbox. Sometimes, you cultivate a rewarding, productive relationship – in spite of the craziness of business growth. This happened to us at White Space when we were introduced to Meredith Lai. First, comes the clear evidence of intelligence, experience, and a stellar attitude. Then, she just delivers the work. But eventually, it’s much more than that. Meredith fuses with a team of ambitious marketers and their even more ambitious clients to create crisply written, strategically sound written material. Don’t let the word ‘blog’ fool you. Meredith writes deeply relevant material around technically complicated topics. And she does it with a willingness and openness that makes the process as great as the work (well, maybe almost as great as the work, but that’s on us). Meredith’s forte is turning technical information into digestible marketing materials, optimized with high-value, authoritative sources, and edited within an inch of its life. We absolutely have the most selective clients who demand exacting writing standards along with creativity. Meredith delivers, always. We would hire Meredith full time in a minute if she’d have us. Happy to discuss further with anyone interested in Meredith’s skill and accomplishments.

“It’s refreshing to work with a freelance writer who’s as invested in getting it right as you. Meredith wrote long-form copy for me for a particularly challenging client, and not only could I count on her work to be solid and error-free, but she proactively sought to improve and adapt to better meet the client’s needs. She’s a true pleasure to work with!”

— Matt Smithmier, Director of Content Development, Creelio


“Meredith stands out for her ability to lead successful cross-functional teams. When I hired Meredith at National Instruments as managing editor, I knew she possessed strong writing skills and had an eye for creating marketing copy that drives results. What I didn’t know was that those core skills, combined with her ability to lead and coach others, would serve to help our organization solve a key issue — training our product marketing engineers to write compelling technical marketing content for our various print and web publications.

Meredith worked tirelessly to create materials and examples of work to ensure our engineering team could write great, technical marketing content to boost web traffic from our target audiences. She went on to deliver the training for the next year, growing talented technical writers across the organization. I would have her on my marketing team any day.”

“Hands down Meredith is by far the best writer I worked with at Creelio (my content marketing tech startup). She consistently delivered top notch, in voice, on target content for blogs and social media. Meredith rarely needed any editing and when given direction, she easily adapted. She exceeded our expectations time and time again. I’ll continue to work with her for editing and writing support.”
