Great copywriting is about more than words: it’s about establishing credibility, standing out from the competition, and connecting you to the people that matter.


Your website is often a client’s first engagement with your brand. If it's dull, outdated or poorly written, it's undermining your business. Sharp, persuasive copywriting can be the difference between a new customer and lost revenue.

Of course, your brand is so much more than your website, which is why Jillian works across a full suite of marketing collateral. She can deliver stylish copy for your client communications, social media posts, brochures, ad campaigns, blogs, newsletters and special projects. She can write your brand story, product names and web headlines. Her diverse client base includes luxury hotels, retail, tourism, the arts and financial services.

If you're lost for words, Jillian can help you find them. Beautifully. 


Years of intrepid, independent travel have lead Jillian to a career as one of Ireland's most prolific travel writers. She's traversed South America, driven the circumference of Australia, spent a year exploring Asia, stayed in the world's leading hotels and lived on four continents. You'll find her travel features on the pages of Ireland's best-selling publications, including the Irish Independent, IMAGE magazine, Business Post and The Irish Times. 

A 20-year career has seen Jillian forge trusted relationships with hotels, tourist boards, airlines, travel agencies and leading PR firms. She always delivers fresh and thoughtful stories to influential and high profile publications. 

Jillian writes about Ireland too, for the national press and international inflight magazines. A member of the Irish Food Writers' Guild, she is also Dublin editor for Georgina Campbell Guides and an author for Fodor's Essential Ireland 2021 guidebook.
