Meet Zoey Jordan Salsbury

Zoey is a writer, a graphic designer, a photographer, a public relations expert, and so much more. She’s pretty good at doing all of that stuff, but don’t just take her word for it!

Take a look at some of the nice things other smart people have said about Zoey, her stellar resume, her portfolio, and her clips. She thinks it will speak for itself.

“[Zoey’s] professional problem-solving savvy puts her on par with public relations officers at major agencies.”

– Nancy Dunham, People Magazine

“Zoey is absolutely fantastic. She solves problems effectively and without being guided – she is proactive and an active asset to our team. [She] is astoundingly good and I would personally enjoy employing her forever.”
