Offering six years of reporting and storytelling.
My name is Jessica Braun Gervais, a Chicago-based writer with six years of experience covering entertainment, technology and education. I spent the last two years developing and refining my skills in various types of marketing writing at Packback. I created multimedia case studies, video testimonials, blog posts, webinar scripts, conference proposals, handouts and product explainers 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.
