Judy Russ

Writer. cook. poet.

Cooking and writing use the same methodology- they're both crafts of research, technique, and time. Compelling end results, both plates and pieces, are the product of endless hours of experimentation and adaptation.
At the end of the day, cooks and writers must ask themselves the same question: have I created something truly delicious, or merely palatable?
Behind the line, I discovered this uncanny link between composing copy and cuisine. I also began connecting the dots between food and feelings; the ways simple ingredients and dishes comfort, disturb, move, and inspire us.
With more than 10 years of experience in both the food and wellness industries, 2 in sales and marketing, and 3 as a self employed copywriter and essayist, I approach all of my endeavors with punctiliousness and fierce curiosity. 
This, combined with natural empathy and a penchant for leadership, is a recipe I feel confident serving to anyone hungry for a little perspective.


Judy writes content for my company page that takes complicated, technical ideas and translates them into easy-to-understand language. She is responsive, punctual, and flexible when communicating about and delivering projects.

Judy's compassion and insight is what made me look forward to working with her every day. She helped me communicate with clients and problem solve in tough situations on a consistent basis which is a perfect example of her reliability and willingness to go the extra mile. She is professional, as well as personable.

I'm a professional writer, but writing about myself stumped me. Judy wrote a badass "about me" for use on my social platforms and websites. It really helped to capture my experience, something that I was too close to myself to effectively do. Most impressively, she developed a selection of in-depth questions to get to know me and my career on a deep, personal level.
