Who is on the path?
Shae Lalor started The Write Path after taking a slight detour on her own career journey. With a desire to return to her passion for writing and to carve out a balanced approach to work, Shae took a leap into the exciting world of small business.
Crafting words to tempt, explain, simplify or invite is Shae’s specialty. Making sure those words follow the basic rules of grammar and punctuation is, well, fun for Shae!
With a career spanning more than 15 years in marketing and communications, Shae also has a broad base of skills and experience to supplement her love for the written word.

Shae was engaged as the editor on a report that was the combination of two years of research. The content was far from a finished draft, but Shae was able to bring it to life in an incredibly well written and professional document. What was a standout for me, was that Shae took the time to build a deep understanding of all the research topics. This enabled her to not only write great copy, but she was able to add content that enhanced the research findings. Actually what was a bigger standout is that she is fun to work with, handles pressure extremely well and she placed as much importance on the outcome of the project as I did. There is no doubt that the final report would not have presented the research in such an easy to read and understandable way without Shae being involved.Patrick O'Connor
Having worked in – and managed – communication teams, and implemented marketing strategies for many years, Shae knows what it is like to manage multiple projects with changing parameters. She also knows that sometimes there are many things happening in the office that prevent the best messages getting to the right people at the ideal time.
Shae relies heavily on intuition to help her understand client requirements quickly and instinctively, and to step into the reader’s shoes. Often, these insights cannot be found in any type of brief – and ultimately, they save you time.

The person behind the keyboard
I do this work for the enjoyment, the constant learning, and to meet new and interesting people. I also love the independence it affords me.
Sometimes anxiety-inducing and sometimes thrilling, there is no such thing as a typical day, and no projects that follow the exact same path. Yet there are many tangible outcomes and rewarding results.
Laughter is the fuel for my life, along with coffee, my hubby, my kids, my hairy dog, playing games, doing puzzles, reading, tending my veggie patch, and playing tennis.
I embrace all the genuine comforts of a simple life. Always with a smile.
