Wexley School for Girls
Copywriter-Associate Creative Director

January 2006-2011

For five years I worked at the little agency that could, creating larger-than-life ideas for clients who wanted something beyond the norm. I learned to not just hone my concepting and writing crafts, but to look at each job as a new opportunity to push the envelope of possibility. From creating the first mobile phone karaoke technology to the Jobcuzzi, the “worlds most relaxing job interview,” I strived to create buzz-worthy experiences that solved the business problem and created fans out of the consumer.

I also helped foster the internal culture at Wexley. From writing company Christmas cards and concepting company parties, to organizing kickball teams and fundraisers, I was at the epicenter of creating the wacky and wonderful world of Wexley.
