Our job is not to create content.
Our job is to change the world of the people who consume it.

Hi, I’m Allie.

Ready for that clichéd writer bio intro? I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember.

I started writing professionally, however, as a junior in college. I moved into a full-time marketing job upon graduation in 2016, but it wasn’t long before I quit to build my freelance writing business.

The months that followed were the most exciting, terrifying, tumultuous, and educational months of my life. I truly wouldn’t be who I am today without that risk and experience.

Almost exactly 18 months after the day I quit my job, I was contacted by a hiring manager at HubSpot. They wanted to hire me as part of a new content initiative.

For reference, HubSpot’s blog was my first introduction to content marketing. They were the reason I wanted to be a marketing writer in the first place. So, to hear from them — to be recruited by them — was an extreme honor.

I started at HubSpot in May 2018 and have since been promoted twice, created my own blog series, and own two internal marketing programs.

I also freelance! I write marketing content that helps business owners, entrepreneurs, and marketers build, grow, and differentiate their companies. My typical clients include SaaS companies, e-commerce businesses, and business publications.

Here are some fun facts about me.

  • I started a business in college (as a senior project) that I later sold for a profit. The buyers are still operating it today.

  • I was first-chair flute in my middle school band. I sat on (and crushed) two flutes in my three-year tenure. It’s a surprise that they kept me around, really.

  • Myers-Briggs: INFJ | Enneagram: 6w5 | DiSC: (very) C

I’m currently based in Chicago.
