Hello, my name is Jessica.

Friends call me Jecca. I’m a freelance writer with 15+ years of experience, mostly in New York and San Francisco. I’m now back in my hometown of Milwaukee, writing features, food stories, and humor pieces. Children’s books are on the horizon.

The pandemic has forced me into the present. It’s the meditation I never wanted but have come to appreciate. That said, last week I kicked a hole in the bathroom door.” – Me in The New York Times, April 2021

I’ve been published on McSweeney’s, Motherly, Scary Mommy, and Little Old Lady Comedy, featured on Cup of Jo, and my work has appeared in print in SLICE Magazine and Six Words About Work, a book from SMITH Magazine. I was Square’s first product copywriter and have worked with Google, Tesla, SpaceX, Hawaiian Airlines, and several start-ups. If you’re interested in working together, reach out on LinkedIn.
