Work experience

Owner/Principal

Self-employed
January, 2016 – Present (over 3 years)

Precise Words Copywriting is a professional creative services company specializing in providing copywriting and editorial services to nonprofit organizations, small businesses, and others. I write (and ghostwrite) blog posts and articles, and provide editorial services to universities and other clients.

Copy Chief/Editor

Creative Direct Response
November, 2000 – January, 2006 (about 5 years)

For five years I worked as a direct mail copywriter, editor, and copy chief/supervisor for a direct mail marketing firm specializing in fundraising for nonprofit organizations. I honed my skills writing and editing hundreds of direct mail fundraising letters, helping to raise millions of dollars for national nonprofit organizations like Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. This job taught me how to use storytelling to evoke response, how to develop a unique voice, how to ghostwrite and represent the views of others, and how to meet strict deadlines.
