Bringing brands to life through ideas + words

My love of writing started in the newspaper biz, and since then, I've been a creative copywriter for brands like Ulta Beauty, Hyatt Hotels, Walgreens and more. I'm currently working at an ad agency in Chicago and partnering with other passionate creatives to brand small businesses in my spare time.

Over the past two years, I've been wearing a leadership hat, mentoring junior creatives along the way. I believe that the best work starts with a smart strategy and comes to life with the perfect balance of art + copy collaboration. 

A self-proclaimed word nerd, you’ll find me rewriting subpar ad copy in my head while I'm out getting inspired. On weekends, you'll find me tasting new craft beer, gardening at my 100-year-old farmhouse or hanging with my rescue pups, Penny + Desmond. (Yes, they're named after characters from the show LOST.)

Recent agencies: FCB Chicago, Leo Burnett, Critical Mass, SapientNitro
Recent brands: Allergan, Janssen, Altria, Samsung Pay, USAA, Moen, Miami Travel, Abbott, Hyatt Hotels

Never underestimate a woman who knows her craft. 

As a craft beer connoisseur, I'm currently building a personal brand in the craft beer space. I've set out to change the ratio and get girls a seat at the beer geek table (or bar). As ladies, we may not have hipster beards, but we do have exceptional palates. 

In just three short months, I grew my followers to over 2,000 and love interacting, posting and trading beer with other craft beer fans. Let's talk beer! Follow the adventures over at @beerbabejess

After all, life is too short to drink bad beer.
