Headshot of Vanessa Green

I’m Vanessa Green, a copywriter and content marketer who gets shit done.

I love writing. I’ve been doing it in various guises for more than 20 years. It is my passion in both work and life.

Show me your creds, you say? I have an honours degree in Journalism & History from the University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia (my home away from home).

Throughout my career, I’ve been a copywriter, editor, content director, content strategist, you name it. If it involves words, I’ve been all over it.

Working in both Canada and the UK, I’ve written for blue-chip brands like Rogers, Bell, Tesco, Yahoo, British Airways, and HubSpot. I’ve also written for companies big and small and for international marketing agencies.

Today, I’m dedicated to helping small businesses craft and hone their copy, content and brand messaging.

The techie stuff: I have experience with all Microsoft programs, Photoshop, HTML & CSS and proprietary content marketing systems. I’ve also used out-of-the-box platforms like WordPress, Webflow & Squarespace. I am a HubSpot Provider and have been using the platform for more than a decade. I also have extensive SEO and PPC experience, and I’ve run ad campaigns on all major social media platforms.

I currently live in Hamilton, Ontario, with my husband Tim, two sons and mini-Goldendoodle, Indy.

OK, enough about me. Tell me about you.

Make me famous!
