Offering seven years of reporting and storytelling.
Hi! I’m Jess, a Chicago-based writer with seven years of experience covering entertainment, wellness and education. I spent three years developing marketing content at Packback including case studies, blog posts, webinar scripts and conference proposals with an emphasis on telling stories and expressing empathy. Prior to Packback, I mastered the art of press releases at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, learned the importance of concise copy at Coupon Cabin and found comfort in reporting through the launch of my own music webzine called Listen Live and Local. When I’m not writing, you can find me training for my next Muay Thai match at Chicago Muay Thai Kickboxing Club, or hanging out with my favorite four-legged pal, Backpacking Brady.
