About Me

I'm a copywriter with 13+ years of experience and the owner of the Obsession Eleven framework for copywriting that creates an obsessed fan base who can't wait to buy from you. This includes copywriting for websites, print brochures, and blog posts.

Strangely enough, I also enjoy writing white papers, strategy documents, policy briefs, government reports, etc. PLEASE NOTE: almost all of these materials are under NDA and I cannot share them.

I love cheese so much that I completed a 6-month cheese internship at Caseus Fromagerie and Bistro, which culminated in a cheese tasting class designed and researched by me. 

And, I love writing so much I attended Sarah Lawrence College for one year for poetry. (Then SLC misfiled my financial aid and that was the end of that.)

My Writing Samples

(Our Story page) Pets Crave Love™ - Obsession Rewriting

Founder & CEO Katie Gingrich came to Obsession Eleven because she suspected the “Our Story” page on her website could do more to sell her dogwalking services. She told the origin story of PCL on that page...but she was always-kinda-sorta hoping nobody would read it. Full case study here: https://www.obsessioneleven.com/blog/case-study-pets-crave-love

(Sales page) SpeakEasy Cooperative (SECO) - Obsession Rewriting for the Sales page

SECO is a paid membership organization for independent voice teachers, run by Michelle Deveaux of faithculturekiss studio. Michelle and I worked together to strengthen the brand messaging of SECO, and then refresh the information to make it more alluring and provocative.

(Sales page) How to Run Your Studio Without Hating Your Boss - Obsession Writing

Michelle of faithculturekiss and the SECO project came back for sales copy for her new course, "How to Run Your Studio Without Hating Your Boss." We clarified the facts: what the course entailed, what they could expect, benefits, and price positioning. Then I pulled it all together with persuasive, on-brand copy.

(One-page website) Vera Anderson Performance Coaching (Obsession Writing)

Vera is a performance coach for the world's elite entrepreneurs, and needed a one-page website that would position her as their peer. I wrote copy that would acknowledge her brand persona's successes and status, while subtly educating them that their next successes could only come as a result of working with Vera. I wrote about her unique background to further demonstrate her as a member of the world's elite, and greatly simplified her service descriptions.

(Blog posts) Inspired Kitchen Design [work done for Moondog Marketing Agency]

For 4 years, I wrote about IKEA kitchens for IKD and developed deep product knowledge. The blogs I wrote were more like case studies: I interviewed satisfied clients and then wrote their kitchen stories up with links to IKEA products used, other relevant blogs posts, and photos. IKD's owner allowed me full creative reign which led to posts like "Like A Mullet, This 80’s Kitchen Had Gone Out of Style" and "When the Most Interesting Man in the World Buys a Kitchen, He Buy

I worked on 2 different projects at Pfizer. 1) Communications Coordinator for the in-house marketing agency for the Informatics division, which comprised 5,000 Pfizer colleagues and about 10,000 contracted resources. 2) Communications Lead for the Clinical Research Information eXchange.

Creative Director, Owner

Obsession Eleven is both my company and my proprietary copywriting & editing process that takes average, bland, blah language & spins it into gold*. Gold being a euphemism for money, of course.

One client in particular doubled their revenue in one month after we rewrote all the copy (and made significant design changes to their site.)
