View my Resume

Hello! My name is Amy.

I’m a copywriter with 10 years of experience at an internal agency for a fortune 500 company. I love what I do and can’t imagine another career – except maybe a donut maker. I love donuts.

Why do I love my job? My craft lets me turn ideas into creative that hits on the emotional nerve of customers, and create brands that customers can connect with. Plus, I get to wake up every day and be creative — something everyone in my family would tell you I was meant to do all along. The art program was a bust, but that tale is for another time.

I hope you enjoy perusing my work. And even if you don’t, i’ll leave you with 4 fun facts about me.

  1. Peanuts + beer = the perfect snack. It’s how I end most of my days.

  2. I have a cat named Edgar, and i’m working on making him famous.

  3. I’m a collegiate hall of fame swimmer.

  4. Sock, shoe. Sock, shoe. Always.

Experience

Senior Copywriter Craft World Wide 7/18/16 – Present Framingham, MA

Currently I work for Craft World Wide on the Staples account. Daily you can find me noodling headlines, teaming up with designers and concepting great stories that resonate with our customers. Email, social, direct mail, radio, print. I do it all. And with a smile on my face.

Senior Copywriter Staples 2/12/2007 – 7/18/16 Massachusetts

I held numerous positions within Staples internal creative agency, working my way up from Junior Copywriter all the way to my current role as Senior Copywriter. Throughout my experience, I tackled just about every facet of the Staples brand, from our Copy & Print business to our B2B division, Staples Business Advantage. Big conceptual campaigns or quick turn, down and dirty emails, I did it all.
