Valerie Holland

Copy Editor, Copywriter, Writer

Freelance writer. Creative thinker. MBA professional. Savvy. Client-focused. Above and beyond.

Valerie Holland blends her MBA degree with her passion for writing to create content for a variety of media. She studied UX/UI design in order to have a fuller understanding of target audiences. She has curated articles, blogs, web copy, manuals, marketing collateral and manuals, as well as provided feature content for a Gannett-owned newspaper as a copywriter and copy editor. Valerie's goal of copywriting is to find voice that draws her audience to action and make it look easy in the process. She especially enjoys writing about health & fitness, business, lifestyle, and religion.

Valerie and her husband reside in the rolling countryside of Virginia with their Dakota sport retriever dog. Her happy place is anywhere outside in nature, enjoying hiking, biking, walking, or kayaking, both close to home and abroad. One of her favorite outings was sea kayaking off Dingle, Ireland! She enjoys many creative outlets like knitting, quilting, and drawing, and she even volunteers to write for others as a way to give back. You'll not find her far from a good, REALLY good, cup of coffee!
