Emily Thompson, freelance writer

I tell impactful stories about people, products, and services – and the value they bring to the world.

Just in case you don’t have time to read my full bio, here I am in 140 characters or less:

"I’m a creative copywriter with a knack for brands, an eye for design, a digital mindset, and a passion for influencing people. Oh—and a sense of humor."

Now here’s the real bio. 

I earned a B.A. in Journalism from University of Wisconsin at Madison (go Bucky). After realizing my first job might involve carrying a police scanner at 2 am in pursuit of “newsworthy” crimes, I decided I was better suited for marketing, advertising, and product writing.

This was 2005—the beginning of the content strategy and digital content marketing phenomena—and I entered the space at the perfect time. I got my feet wet working at University of Wisconsin Health, churning out captivating, SEO-friendly digital content, and learning to build corporate websites. Over the last 10 years, I’ve written emails, blog articles, white papers, sales sheets, website content, social media posts, press releases, pitch decks, video scripts, podcasts, and more. You name the media. I’ve probably done it. 

When I’m not writing, doodling ideas, or chatting with my clients, you’ll find me hiking with my husband and 2 mischievous mutts. (See what I did there? Alliteration.)

My career highlights and recognition include:

  • 2012 OMMA Awards Finalist for social media campaign: Cigna GO YOU
  • 2009 CLIO Healthcare Award: Massachusetts General Hospital 
  • 2009 MITX: Best Health & Fitness Website: massgeneral.org
  • 2009 AIGA Best Designed Website: massgeneral.org
  • 2008 Platinum eHealthcare Leadership Awards: uwhealth.org

Other key team members

Obi, Junior Chewer

The newest addition to our team at EST Creative is Obi (short for Obi Wan Kenobi). He is a jedi-master at going behind my back to find things to chew. And, actually, that's the reason I haven't had time to finish his website bio. I'm busy chasing this puppy around and saying, "noooo Obi!" 

His new nickname is 'NoObi." 

Tucker Thompson, Senior Snacker

My main focus is on eating large objects. I am a versatile snacker and can chew on anything from large tree branches to women's shoes to my own tail. For the past 2 years of my career (ahem, and life), I've developed key skills that support EST Creative, namely:

  • Snuggling.
  • Waggling my tail for treats.
  • Licking faces.
  • Looking cute.
