Vice President, Communications
Amy Prindle runs her own copywriting business, Marketing, She Wrote. Amy began her career journey in magazine publishing, which cultivated her focus on the final product. A longtime member of the American Copy Editors Society, she became a certified copy editor and polished many books, articles, and promotional materials into print. But her zeal for creating content was uncontainable. As she was approached for more and more writing projects, she knew it was time to adapt her business to reflect this progression. She delightedly evolved into a storyteller for hire, and she’s since told the stories of a fast-growing energy management software company, a nonprofit content agency, a 12-topic health seminar series, and several small businesses.
