Our Team

Write Connections was founded by a team of professionals with more than 30 years of experience in strategic planning, marketing and design.

The team brings together a passion for storytelling, customer service and graphic design to help you find your voice and advance your mission.

I would love to chat with you. How about we start with a one-hour, no-commitment consultation?

What People Are Saying

Jess and the team at Write Connections are fantastic to work with. Their enthusiasm and the creative approach they took in launching our new customer service website was exactly what we needed. Our web traffic and member registration and has far exceeded our expectations. Couldn’t have done it without them. When it comes time for our next project, we will be using the team at Write Connections.

Tim Reecer, City of Elkhart

Write Connections get results by understanding what you want to accomplish and developing an effective strategy to accomplish that goal.

Don Weirenga, Corvilla

I first met Jess when we worked together on diversity issues and then started to use her expertise when trying out new ideas and concepts with my partner companies. Jess is a marketing and communications professional who I rely on to help guide me when creating new programming.

Keith Woods, United Way Worldwide

Jess is an amazing person to work with. Given the breadth of her experience, she has a wealth of knowledge to draw upon. She understands the ins and outs of fundraising and is passionate about matching donors with causes that are important to them. Jess is very perceptive, and can be counted on to be frank and honest about what works and doesn’t work in the non-profit sector.
