Over the course of my career, I've covered a variety of media – print ads, marketing brochures, web pages, promotional emails, just to name a few. I've touted the benefits of asset allocation to novice investors and tempted women with shoe fetishes to purchase a killer pair of Fendis. Based in the Philadelphia area, I've put pen to paper in an ad agency, creative services groups of big corporations, and an Internet start-up.
What I walked away with from all of those experiences is the simple joy of collaborating with clients, writers, and designers, creating pieces that communicate, stimulate, and ultimately motivate to action.
“I had the pleasure of supervising Jackie at both GSI, and more recently on the agency side at Emerge Digital. A talented, smart, and hard worker, and a consistently excellent writer. Everyone, without fail, enjoys and appreciates working with her, from project managers to executives. One of the few writers I know who can jump from interactive to print and back without breaking a sweat. She totally gets it, shares what she knows, and leaves every project better than she found it, regardless of the circumstances. She takes critiques of her work well, and can take as much rope as you give her, bringing back copy and concepts that everyone loves.”
– Michael Leis, Strategic Consultant
"I was fortunate enough to work with Jackie when I needed a freelance writer to develop content for an extensive 100+ page customer help website. She took a technical subject matter and put it in clear, concise language that was easy to understand. Not only is she a very talented and creative writer, interacting with her during the entire project was a pleasure. I honestly can't say enough good things about working with Jackie and look forward to my next project with her."
– Tricia McKinney, Owner, Outside the Lines
"Jackie is the consummate creative professional. She asks the right questions, then works without hand holding; is passionate about her craft, but takes client changes in stride; and delivers customer-grabbing copy well under deadline and well above expectations."
– Heath Hansen, QVC Creative Services
“I have worked with Jackie as a designer/writer team at two companies in the past and have always been impressed by her creativity and positive attitude. When I needed a writer for a project, Jackie was my first choice. I was thrilled with the final results - she exceeded my expectations. She is undeniably my top choice whenever I need a writer or an editor for a project."
