Leslye Wood is a freelance copywriter and a dang good storyteller, delivering raved-about marketing communications to the highest bidder clients she loves since 1997—concepting, messaging, content development, and copywriting. She combines a practical approach to business with insight, creativity, and a journalistic bent—delivering fresh copy that cuts through the clutter with a customer-centric message. She has wide-ranging experience targeting consumer, small business, and enterprise audiences, many of them in high tech. Her client list is pretty impressive and her clients are pretty impressed. (You can take my word for it or you can check it out for yourself.) She can also put together a team to do design and production. In other news, she was a writer/producer on the award-winning documentary film Sweet Crude, about the Niger Delta oil conflict.
Before starting her own business, Leslye was in the corporate world for 15 years and was director of marketing and sales for a photonics company. She has a bachelor’s degree in educational psychology and a master’s in communications. When not working hard for clients, she is playing hard with friends/fam, volunteering at Ronald McDonald House and the Seattle public library with her therapy dog Lucy, traveling, hiking, cooking, reading—and doing what she can to change the world.
