WHAT I DO
I love writing and editing for different reasons. Writing allows me to capture a client's complete thoughts into a concise piece through planning, research and, finally, words. And editing allows me to be precise and detailed to ensure the technical aspects of the work let the message take center stage.
I have experience writing a variety of copy including advertising taglines, marketing copy, web copy, blogs, editorial features, company profiles and biographies. I have edited others' work in all of these forms as well. In addition, I edit fiction work and higher education textbooks. I enjoy the diversity of projects as it allows me to continually learn about new subjects. It keeps me interested in the world around us.
Meghan and I worked together for several years at WilsonHCG, where she began as a copywriter and was quickly promoted to the Director of Marketing. The dedication and leadership she provided her team was unlike anything I have ever encountered before. Although she consistently had to juggle many challenging projects at once, Meghan never hesitated to provide support and guidance to her team. I'm grateful to call her both a friend and mentor - I miss her!
In addition to Meghan's leadership skills, she is also a talented, hard-working content creator. She excels at having the ability to take little direction or information and turning it into a well-crafted, strategic piece of content. Once such project was an employment branding report - one of WilsonHCG's highest performing pieces of content. Not only did she create all the content, but she also helped drive a lot of the promotional strategy through the collaboration of her team.
Meghan is a fantastic all around person and would make a tremendous addition to any team!

Meghan did a wonderful job editing a textbook that a number of colleagues and I wrote on the Introduction to Business. I highly recommend Meghan. You will not be disappointed.

Meghan retooled a dated biography for me on very-short notice when I accepted a new position. She was able to find very precise and industry-specific language that is relevant to my field and turned a polished product around to me in less than a weekend. She is an absolute pleasure to work with, would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to create or edit important work.

Meghan Ford recently wrote copy for my real estate website, and she did a wonderful job of taking my concept and putting it into words! She was very easy to work with and was quick to respond to my questions and make any text changes. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of quality writing.

Meghan is a creative, focused professional who is adept at seeing both the big picture and the small details. She led a small internal marketing team at WilsonHCG that matched or exceeded what an external agency would have been able to do. She always made time to work with her employees, providing coaching and constructive advice at every opportunity. Her MBA studies at the University of Tampa have given her a stronger understanding of marketing techniques and best practices.

Meghan's positivity is contagious--she starts every day on a high note and encourages others to do the same. Not only is she an incredibly hard worker but she is also very detail orientated and an expert at her craft. While Meghan is extremely professional-she always takes the time to get to know the people she works with and genuinely cares how they're doing. Anyone would be VERY lucky to work or partner with Meghan!

Meghan has been a fantastic manager to work for. Over the least year or so, she has helped me develop my skills on the marketing and sales ops team, despite having limited knowledge and experience in these roles. She exudes patience and positivity, no matter what the situation calls for. I know these two attributes helped make my experience working for her an amazing one and I can easily say that she is one of the best managers I’ve worked for.
Despite the learning curve, Meghan was always supportive of me as I worked to get on the same page as the rest of my teammates. She was always available to me, no matter how silly or intricate my questions might have been. She provided a confidence boost during the days I struggled and always spoke to me respectfully. She knows how to adapt her management style to work with the individual she is managing, allowing her team to gain a lot of value out of it and feel that they can rely on her for anything. I know Meghan would go to bat for any one of us, which seems like a very rare quality to find in a manager these days.
Meghan’s marketing, copywriting and copy editing skills are very strong and, thankfully, her teaching skills are also adequate. She was able to clearly explain these concepts to me and help me develop my skills in all of these areas and then some. I’m confident that I not only learned from her, but that I learned the RIGHT way from her.
