OUR BROADER TEAM
JESSICA ABELSOHN | Freelance Copywriter
Who slaves away over a law degree and then chucks it all in to follow her writing dream? Jess did. After three years doing the 9-5 grind, and with six years of publishing experience under her belt, Jess then threw in that towel and embraced freelance life. You can now find her writing about anything and everything, from financial literacy right through to where the best playgrounds are in Australia. Jess has experience in multiple areas including lifestyle, parenting, finance and health, and genuinely loves the thrill of the writing chase – researching a topic, delving right in and creating content that is not only informative but also engaging, humourous and at times, downright personal. But she wouldn’t have it any other way.
STEPH WANLESS | Freelance Copywriter
Steph has almost 15 years’ experience in the Australian media, communications and content sector, working for and with a variety of brands including Fairfax Digital, Mars, KitchenAid, IOOF, National Insurance Brokers Association, Perth Airport, Travellers Choice and Commonwealth Bank, as well as some of the country’s top agencies.
