Jess Stampe
Just Ask Jess, LLC

Over my thirteen-year career as a communications professional, I have written and edited and formatted a wide range of materials, including technical academic papers, promotional marketing materials, blogs, and business publications for both print and web publication. Each of these projects required a different level of writing and editing. I have worked with academic authors who aimed for everything between a conversational journal article and a formal dissertation. What sets me apart from other editors is my additional public speaking and interviewing experience, which enables me to both relay and gather information to and from stakeholders.

I am highly proficient in both Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) and Adobe Suite (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Lightroom, Acrobat). During my tenure as a Book Editor at ClickFunnels, I developed time-saving Word macros, a house style guide for PerfectIt, and a database of TextExpander snippets to streamline the writing and editing process.

My experience collaborating with cross-functional teams, including project managers, writers, editors, and designers, has given me a strong collaborative work style and the ability to thrive in fast-paced environments. I am adept at handling high volumes of work and meeting tight deadlines across multiple time zones without compromising quality.

Please let me know if you have any questions about my resume or experience. While I have included my most relevant roles in my resume, my LinkedIn profile showcases my full job history and portfolio.
