Many businesses struggle to stand out from the competition and explain their product or service in words that connect with their audience. As a content strategist and writer, I help companies do exactly that: differentiate their company, show their unique value, and translate complex information into clear communication.
Prior to starting Sidetone, I led branding, marketing, user experience design, and communication teams at several local creative agencies. Now, I do similar work (even with many of my old co-workers!) through my own business.
While I’m no longer part of a larger company, I’m hardly a lone wolf. I feel fortunate to work with many collaborators and partners to create better content and experiences together. It’s such rewarding work, and I’m so thankful that I get to do it with people I love and admire!
I started my career in financial services and was a bond trader during the ‘08 recession.
I’m a quintessential oldest child and mom of a quintessential only child (plus a dog, my first baby).
I danced competitively through childhood and college—both great lessons in discipline, teamwork, and creativity.
I’m low maintenance about most things, but high maintenance about where to eat.
I have a vice for spa days, mindless reality TV, and crime documentaries.
What’s Special About Sidetone

Kind Comments From Clients
“Shaina is one of those rare professionals who you can throw into a chaotic situation and who hits the ground running, contributing immediately while lifting morale with her can-do attitude, team orientation, and quick smile. She takes initiative, delivers exemplary work on a timely basis, and when she doesn’t think she’s a good fit for what is being asked of her, she’s the first to speak up. Top-notch in every way.”
