Jan Goldie - copywriter

Jan Goldie discovered she wanted to write when she was 10 and won a book in an essay contest. “Winning free stuff is very motivating. I've been writing for free stuff and less free stuff ever since.” A qualified journalist and published author, Jan is big on asking the right questions, capturing the essence of what needs to be said and getting it ‘just right’. When she’s not copywriting for clients, she’s writing songs with her partner Matt - panicking her way through open mic nights.

Rachel Hart - copywriter

At eight years old, Rachel wrote her first ‘novel’ – a 54-page faux murder mystery about who shot her teacher (spoiler alert: it was with a water gun!). After this early introduction to writing, it was only natural she followed her passion and gained an English degree before becoming a copywriter. When not typing away, Rachel can usually be found experimenting in the kitchen or hanging out with her family.
