We are always excited when the growth of our company means we can add another content writer to our staff, and we are especially pleased with our newest addition, Amanda Teuscher. She has been a WordJack freelance writer for several years, and just joined our production staff in October 2019. We asked her a few questions that we could share so everyone can get to know her a bit better.
How did you get your start as a content writer?
I got into writing for WordJack because I noticed a post looking for writers who could work from home. Since I had two very small boys at the time and we had just moved to a new city, the option of working a little from home seemed like a perfect fit. I’ve always enjoyed English and writing and was excited to find a creative outlet. I graduated a long time ago with crazy aspirations to become a nurse, but due to a fear of needles that I just couldn’t conquer, I went into health education instead. I did some teaching after I graduated, but wanted to stay home with my kiddos once my first son was born, and that was the end of my school days.
What are you enjoying about working at WordJack?
I really like the flexibility and chance for creativity that comes with being a writer for WordJack. I have been enjoying getting to know other people in the company instead of being out in freelancer-land all alone. 🙂 I would have to say that my strong suit in working for WordJack is that I have written for so many companies. Really my strength is my experience. Even though I haven’t been on staff long, I already know a lot of the clients and their likes/dislikes from my time as a freelancer. I’m excited to be part of a team!
What are some of your interests/hobbies outside of work?
Some of my hobbies include reading, listening to podcasts and running (slower than a turtle), and watching Marvel movies with my family.
Anything else you would like to share?
I have 3 kids now, am living in Colorado after a 6-year stint in Michigan, and have a husband who I both like and love. I have a very dry sense of humor that (unfortunately) doesn’t often translate over Skype chat and have way too many pets.
Welcome to the WordJack Team, Amanda! We are happy to have you and your writing skills on board.
