Korina Lynn Dove What I enjoy the most in my role is that we get to see our words in action through, of all things, … numbers! Through handy dashboards that show us click rates and impressions, we can gauge which words work best and where. Also, every request is challenging and unique. One day we are crafting quirky copy for marketing, and the next day we are nit-picking over a phrase in a legal notice. Korina Lynn Dove Senior Copywriter
