Meet the Emily Writes Team: Katy Compton, Writer

I’m pleased to close out this short summer blog series where you got to know each of the incredible team members at Emily Writes! While I started out as a one-woman show, I quickly discovered that I needed a team. I certainly can’t do it all, and am incredibly grateful for each woman who contributes to our success. Each project is matched to their individual creative talents and expertise. 

This week, I’m excited to introduce you to Katy Compton. Katy is an experienced marketer and writer with a special knack for condensing complex information into concise, ready-friendly content. Katy’s talent applies especially well to writing social media posts, where less is usually more!

Katy is always up for trying her hand at a new project, and I love her upbeat and positive attitude. She’s an integral member of our team, and I’m so blessed to have met her!
