I’m Cherie Landis, a Copywriter.

Words can educate, inspire, and foster action. As a captivating storyteller and detailed editor, I ensure every copy block does all three.

About Me

I’m a highly motivated communications professional with over five years of experience editing and writing in various industries—academic publishing, non-profit, fitness, ecommerce, outdoor retail.

Writing With a Passion While Exploring The World.

When I’m not scaling sandstone, striding singletrack, or snagging summits, I’m writing product descriptions, blog posts, and short stories; taking my pup on adventures; or binging my latest TV show obsession.

My love of learning and everything outdoors keeps my creativity flowing and my skills fine-tuned.
