Portfolio

Hi! I’m Alison Grace Johansen. I have extensive experience with writing, researching, editing, copyediting, interviewing, blogging and marketing for large and small publishers, websites, blogs and social media platforms. My unique background in law, corporate governance, securities, journalism and publishing has enabled me to produce and write everything from legal newsletters and articles to start-up blogs.

Here’s my writing portfolio of freelance work and guest author posts that have gathered a nice following. If you’d like me to write for or edit your blog, help write your newsletter, or develop your SEO and social media platforms; or if you’re looking for a writer, editor, copywriter, ghostwriter or proofreader, please reach out to me here.

I’ve enjoyed working with several freelance clients, including Lifelock and IOI Partners, which I’ve helped with writing, editing, newsletter content, SEO optimization and social media strategy. I also handle content strategy and creation for Pixel Jocks, a digital marketing agency. Please reach out to me to find out more about how we can help!

More About Me

I’m a mama, children’s book author, writer, researcher, advocate for those with special needs and a mama who wants to help make things happen. This blog is where I share my journey, what I’m learning, my ideas and my hopes for the future. To find out more about me, read my full bio and check out my free newsletter.

What did I do before founding Mothernova and freelancing? For 15 years I enjoyed working as a senior legal editor and reporter for The Bureau of National Affairs Inc. (BNA), now known as Bloomberg BNA; and as a writer and editor for CCH Washington Service Bureau, now part of Wolters Kluwer.

I interviewed attorneys, government officials, and those in the corporate world. I wrote and edited news stories, features, special reports, interview pieces, and guest author articles on a range of topics under the umbrellas of federal ethics law, securities law, and corporate governance law.

Before that, I worked in both the editorial and marketing departments for Scarecrow Press, with the Roman and Littlefield Publishing Group.

I received my undergraduate degree in political science from the University of Richmond, and my law degree from the Dickinson School of Law at the Pennsylvania State University.
