Experience

Summary

From blog posts to web copy to email marketing, I've done it all, and love the thrill and challenge of finding the right words to translate the passion behind a company into something that promotes and sells.

Work history

HSP Direct
Direct Mail Copywriter
As a copywriter for this award winning agency, I researched, studied and translated political views into engaging copy. By the middle of the first year I was writing for 14 clients and was able to successfully capture each unique voice.
Writer and Editor
Patch.com a content aggregation website pulls posts from Facebook pages of local organizations and non-profits across America. I was assigned 25 cities in the "Connecticut Patch"and wrote headlines and edited copy for non-profits in those areas.
Writer and Editor
As a writer and Editor for this fast-paced magazine in Dumbo Brooklyn, I researched stories, events and happenings in the world of video and photography and crafted blogs as well as edited blogs and articles before they were posted.
Blitz Digital Group
E-Mail Copywriter
I ran marketing campaigns end-to-end for three different clients, helped research and brainstorm ideas for clients with weekly newsletters, edited copy for clarity and brand consistency, and helped optimize emails for best results.
Payoneer
Freelance Copywriter
I was hired to create a cheat sheet for affiliate recruitment for local businesses. This required research into the latest affiliate recruitment software and tips and tricks from industry giants.
Technical Copywriter
Ytria is a software company that makes products to help administrators (and developers) work with more speed, insight, and accuracy. I help them translate their complex, technical concepts into easy-to-read blog posts, web copy, emails, and newsletters.
Gadget Review Writer
ETekly is a news website that covers a range of topics about technological advancements that impact our human experience. As a gadget review writer, I research, curate, and write engaging gadget reviews about tech that's changing the way we do life.
Blog Writer
Skim AI is a web toolbar that lets you summarize, clip, share, and stuff you find on the web. As a blog writer, I wrote how-to articles for college-age students about research, education technology, and machine learning.

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!
