Sarah Ratliff is the owner of Coquí Content Marketing, LLC, which she founded in March 2010. After spending over two decades in corporate America (in a variety of marketing, trade show management, project management and administrative roles), she and her husband left that world behind and started an organic farm.

Today Sarah feels fortunate to call herself a corporate America escapee turned eco-organic farmer, writer, activist, serial entrepreneur and published book author.

Along with 10-time published author, Bryony Sutherland, she is the co-author of the book Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide—an anthology of essays written by people in the global Multiracial Community. It is available in paperback and eBook.

In general, much of Sarah’s writing focuses on racial equality, feminism and geopolitics. Sarah and her husband own an eco-organic, self-sustaining farm in Puerto Rico, where they raise goats and fowl, and grow tropical fruit trees and bamboo.

Deb Kingsbury has two roles with Coquí Content Marketing. She serves as the Managing Editor and the Social Media Manager. When she’s not planning out content for clients and ensuring all of us adhere to deadlines, she’s home with her husband and dogs, hiking in the Sierras or doing search and rescue.

Cathy Habas splits her time performing two functions for Coquí Content Marketing. She serves as the Manager of Creative Content, ensuring all the graphics we deliver to clients or that are used on social media meets clients’ specifications. She is a also a content writer.

For years Cathy tried to not be a writer. Because “no one makes money writing,” she set her sights on a biology degree at Indiana University Southeast. After spending three years as a round peg in a square hole, she began to work on an English degree instead. Her creative, academic and journalistic writing appeared in several university publications, and she helped other students improve their writing through her work at the Writing Center. Cathy began freelancing during her final semester. Assuming she was entering an industry where she’d be a bottom-feeder and way out of her league, Cathy avoided marketing herself as a writer, instead promoting her editing and proofreading skills. A few of her clients picked up on her hidden talent. Reluctantly she agreed to write, but soon found her groove and confidence. Since then, the writing requests have never stopped! Apparently it’s more than possible to make money writing – who knew! Cathy is proud to have grown from a proofreader to a writer with Coquí Content Marketing. She enjoys writing articles that speak to readers’ practical and emotional sides. Although she is game to write about any topic, she feels particularly satisfied after writing about addiction recovery and other motivational self-help topics. Cathy is an amateur equestrian, gardener and baker. Her perfect weekend involves trail riding with friends and eating comfort food on the couch with a good movie.
