About Me

Hello, my name is Jessica (Jecca) Berta. 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.

I’ve been published on McSweeney’s, Motherly, Scary Mommy, Little Old Lady Comedy, and in print: SLICE Magazine and Six Words About Work, a book from SMITH Magazine. I’ve been featured on Cup of Jo and have worked with Google, Tesla, SpaceX, Hawaiian Airlines, and several other companies large and small.

A believer in doing well by doing good, I began my career working for United Way and The Ad Council (Smokey Bear, McGruff, et. al.). Since then I’ve worked at Big Spaceship, Odopod, and Square, and freelanced with Wieden+Kennedy, BBH, and several start-ups.
