Copywriting that’s medium-agnostic
She is at home in any medium, whether it’s digital, video, print, direct response or outdoor. And while her entrepreneurial side loves the business of “the business,” her first love is writing copy that entertains, inspires and motivates readers to act. In short, crafting compelling copy that goes from prosaic to powerful, promptly.
