About Kerry

 

I am a creative marketer with a talent for writing digital and print copy that persuades readers to take action. My career started with a passion for getting the right message in front of the right audience, and has lead me to helping lead a team of writers to create clear, concise, and compelling content for 100+ B2B clients. I do admit to getting a bit of help from my friend, caffeine.

Kerry is incredibly self-motivated, a fast learner, and an overall pleasure to work with. I was consistently impressed with her writing skills, creativity, and willingness to learn and grow. She has a wide range of expertise, from content to PR to social media. She has also stepped up and taken on a leadership role many times, mentoring more junior writers and doing whatever is needed to keep projects running smoothly.
