As we continue our journey into the lives of our team, Jenny Wescoat is the next person we’d like you to meet. Her situation is a little different than most of our team members. Jenny gets two versions of her story – grab your java and read on to see why.
Jenny’s take on her bio:
Jenny Wescoat lives in the St. Louis area with her husband and four kids. She enjoys reading classic books and chick lit novels. Jenny also likes to go on road trips, camping and hiking that includes no risk of running into a bear or breaking a sweat. She avoids anything related to numbers and she dislikes organic food just because it’s cool right now.
Besides writing for Susan J. Campbell Copywriting Solutions, Jenny also writes a weekly mom’s column for Patch.com. On a good day, she loves her life as a stay-at-home mom and part-time freelance writer. On a bad day, she pretends she’s being held hostage by very short, sticky-faced terrorists. She happens to be Susan’s favorite employee, not by Susan’s choice, but because she must. Jenny’s her sister.
Susan’s take on Jenny’s role in the company:
It is the classic case of clear nepotism. As a kid, I thought this meant people hired their nephews. Most of mine are under the age of 10, so asking them to write for our blog would likely be a trip down elementary school lane. It would be fun reading, but may do little to promote our image. If you’re looking for high quality, great work ethic and a love of writing – Jenny is the perfect fit.
Her role in this company is not the result of her relation – that is really just how we met. Jenny’s quality approach to her work, her dedication to early delivery and her team mentality is why she plays an important role. We have a very large family – large enough in fact that we could completely replace each member of the SJC team and have plenty left over. But our focus is not on ensuring the people in our family work; our focus is on producing quality work by assembling the right people.
Jenny’s background is diverse from her University of Missouri degree in Religious Studies to her role as a sales rep for a local oil company. Perhaps her most fitting experience, however, were her days making cookies at the Mrs. Fields stand at the mall, saving me the cut pieces of the chocolate, chocolate chip to snack on during my time helping to manage the children’s clothing store in the same shopping center. If it’s not about chocolate – it’s not worth doing.
One day, we hope Jenny will lead the charge to expand our efforts in the St. Louis area. Until then, she’s happy being a mom and writing once the kids are off to bed. Her lifestyle is the model on which I first built this company – offering intelligent women an opportunity to challenge themselves in the workforce, without leaving home.
Is it working? We’ve grown 75% in the last 6 months – I think we might be on to something.
Hopefully, these Monday morning coffee talks are starting your week off on a positive note. At Susan J. Campbell Copywriting Solutions we love what we do, and we’d like to think that it shows in the content that we produce for our clients. To be a little cliche, there is definitely no “I” in teamwork and that is something we embrace daily. If you’d like to learn more about what we do, feel free to give us a call, with or without your coffee!
