Experience

Summary

My writing journey has been colorful, to say the least. I've done everything from ghostwriting novellas to blogging but soon realized that my passion was content marketing. I love translating the passion behind companies into words that promote and sell.

Amber is a fantastic writer and incredible to work with. I worked alongside her for over a year and saw firsthand how well she captures each client's voice, her creative ingenuity, and her hardwork meeting tight deadlines. Clients and coworkers alike love working with her, and she partners closely with them to ensure she's creating exactly the sort of copy they're looking for. Incredible asset!

Amber is a gifted writer and storyteller. Her copy translates well in e-mail and drives the intended action. But what sets Amber apart from other direct response writers is her reliability, speed and positive attitude. She gets the job done well quickly and she is a great person to have on the team!

I created an ad campaign to encourage people to read no matter what they enjoy reading or how they like to read it (audio book, physical book, kindle etc). In the photos the models are becoming the books they read.

Ideal team

Some of the best and most productive teams I've worked with have been small, with leaders who trust you to do good work without micromanaging.
