View my Resume

Hello! My name is Amy.

I’m a copywriter with 8+ 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 Kardashian (how do you get that gig?)

Why do I love my job? My craft lets me turn ideas into pieces that hit on the emotional nerve of customers and bring brands to life. 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’m sticking with plan B.)

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. When getting dressed, I prefer sock, shoe. Sock, shoe.
