Hi, I'm Jeanie, I live and work in Portland. My passion is to collaborate with those that need guidance and support in the areas of: creative strategy and business development. I especially love creating compelling copy, helping others find their voice + lifting a business to the next level. When I'm not working you can find me hanging with my fam, volunteering in the community, supporting local biz by checking out new food + drink (because Portland!), travelling and loving on my Coco, the cutest puppy ever.
Recently I have been really excited about working on projects that include.....
crafting engaging copy, content strategy/digital/print/social strategy, website enhancement, business set-up, technical writing, operational strategy, inspiring staff, creating effective teams, inspiring collaboration, volunteering, making people laugh and finding joy in the everyday.
