JILL ANNE RUSSELL CREATIVE

My name is Jill. I'm a writer, editor, and branding expert who helps clients figure out what to say and how to say it in a way that makes sense for their audience and business initiatives. Creative storytelling is what I do best.

I have an MA in publishing and writing from Emerson College and have lead editorial projects and teams at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Groupon, Thrive Market, Simmons College, and other companies.
