My name is Julia Herrick. I attended the University of Toronto where I majored in both English and Psychology. After graduating, I moved to New Hampshire where I worked at Tardis Advertising. There, I began as a copywriter and founded the company’s social media department.
In late 2013, I was recruited as a writer for Backerjack.com. Backerjack covers and reviews a wide variety of products looking for crowdfunding on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. With strict deadlines and post guidelines, I learned what it means to successfully write for a WordPress blog. After seven months of contributing, I was promoted to Associate Editor.
I moved to Chicago in March of 2015. I began freelance copywriting for RK Associates working on their client, Colgate-Palmolive. In August, I accepted an Account Executive position at Montfort Advertising. Montfort is a small agency and, therefore, my job includes many duties. I interact with our clients, manage each project that comes through and also engage in creative copywriting.
