Gerry Ellen Avery

Copywriter/Author/Creative Content Writer

Location icon United States

My entire background involves the nature of health and well-being as a whole. As a published author of four nonfiction books under my pen name Gerry Ellen, I've had the fortunate role of inspiring and helping others with my work. I'm a contributing author for numerous online & print publications, a copywriter in the digital marketing space for a variety of genres, a content writer for B2B business strategies, an SEO blogger, an editor & proofreader, a ghostwriter for industry websites, and a storyteller extraordinaire.

Throughout my decade-long writing career, my content has focused primarily around healthcare, business-centered marketing, animal wellness, adventure & travel, holistic topics, fitness, lifestyle, and website branding for tech & insurance sites.

There's always more to write, more challenges to take on, more growth with trending topics and markets, and more of a willingness to sink my whole self into each one. For me, the joy and passion of writing creates momentum, thankfully.
