Q1. Where are you from?

Laramie, Wyoming

Q2. How did you discover copywriting?

I was looking for a way to earn some extra income and stumbled upon it. I don’t remember where, but I do remember that V-8 moment.

Q3. What forms of copy do you write?

Emails are my favorite, with multi-section newsletters second. Blogs and product descriptions are fun, too, but email is my main focus. (I’m your girl if you like to rant on social media.)

Q4. What are your favorite niches to write in?

My specialty is working with companies who aren’t getting the most out of their email lists. They’re screwing themselves out of a fortune by chasing new clients instead of selling more (and more often) to those who’ve already given them money.

Q5. What is the #1 lesson you've learned as a copywriter?

Most businesses know only what they do – they don’t know much about marketing. What would be Marketing 101 to me is news to them, especially to local businesses.

Q6. Who is your favorite copywriter & why?

Learned from several: Mitch Miller, Ben Settle, Chris Haddad, Chris Orzechowski, Sean Anthony, and the list goes on. They’re all geniuses at what they do and outstanding teachers.

Q7. Do you have any recent wins to share?

No recent wins, as I’ve just pivoted to focus on emails. I’ve helped previous clients show up in the top 5 on Google and gain high-paying clients.

Q8. What would you say to a prospective client who wants to hire you?

If I make you a dollar, would you pay me a quarter? For sales emails, I’m not paid up front – I take a cut after you get your money. You must have a buyer’s list, at least two proven offers (I don’t do sales pages), and reviews, testimonials, or other social proof.

Q9. What is a good email address for prospective clients to contact you?
