I’m Kelley Gardiner, and I’m here to help women and non-binary business owners reach their goals. 

The right message, written in the right way, can help your business grow.

Portland Businesses Unite!

“Ugh, my website sucks.” “I know I should blog but I don’t have the time.”

I hear this stuff all the time. Let’s take something off your plate. Something like, say:

  • Website rewrites
  • Editing
  • Content writing
  • Newsletters
  • Blogging

Got a project right now? Email kelleygard at gmail.com. Please include your name, your business name, your project, and any deadlines you might have. 

I’ve written and/or edited for local publications like the Portland Mercury, Red Tricycle, All Things Real Estate, and NW Kids Magazine. Local businesses like Stitched have hired me to rehaul website copy, and I’ve partnered with Upswept Creative to deliver copy that functions as well as their beautiful website designs.

I also wrote a book about roller derby, but that’s a story for another time.

I’m a Portland writer, born and raised. (Okay, technically, I was raised in Beaverton.) When I’m not writing at home in Parkrose Heights, I’m chasing kids around parks or searching for the best sandwiches and ice cream in town. It’s a challenging pursuit, but I do what I can.

Let’s get started.


I would highly recommend Kelley Gardiner for any writing or editing project. She has a unique point-of-view that brings content to life. Whether you’re looking for website content or marketing materials, Kelley can tell your story. Kelley’s work on our department’s website at Portland State University helped us triple our website traffic. Couldn’t have done it without her!” — Cathy Heslin
