After several years of social work in New Orleans as a child abuse counselor, I decided that advertising was more my speed emotionally and would also allow me to indulge my writing skills. I was fortunate enough to get hired as a copywriter at an in-house advertising department for a retail store, and then spent several years as a copywriter for 3 different ad agencies in the Tampa-St. Pete area. I returned to in-house marketing for an electric utility where I managed the ad agency and a small in-house staff.
