Lyn Pollard

Dallas, Texas

I wear a lot of hats. Luckily, I'm a hat person.

As a freelance writer, social media and content marketing consultant I create well-voiced, consistent messaging and original content that engage and empower a variety of audiences.

And, as a parent advocate and freelance essayist I write, blog, talk and tweet about removing stigma and creating equal access to education for kids (like mine) with differences and disabilities.

Trained as a journalist, I have strong experience in writing, marketing, change management consulting, corporate communications and public relations.

Career Highlights:

• Freelance writing featured on the Motherlode blog, on,, and The Child Mind Institute among others

• Start-up company ChalkyDoodles™ products offered on and in Better Homes and Gardens Magazine

• Experience and training with Arthur Andersen and Andersen Consulting change management practices

• Experience as a journalist in Washington D.C. and Dallas, TX
