Our team

At WriterGirl, our mission is simple: We build relationships one word at a time. 

Expect us to ask you a lot of questions about your project, your brand’s voice and your goals. And you can also expect to enjoy the process more than you thought possible with our down-to-earth, fun, easy going team.

Meet some of our employees (and one WriterDog) who will make sure you’re happy with the final product. Then, get in touch with us about your next project.
