Gael Hees (formerly Gael Hancock) is happiest when writing, planning a piece with a client, or researching new markets for her services. She loves the whole writing business. She enjoys getting to learn about new things, traveling to new interesting places, and meeting incredible people. She also gets to do amazing things – think “drive race cars” and “visit mile-deep coal mines.” Wrestling a sentence into shape or finding the properly nuanced word to describe something gives Gael great joy. In her words, she’s “a word nerd for sure.”
Throughout her 30+ year writing career, she has won regional and national awards for everything from economic development collateral materials to holiday-themed television commercials. She has edited an annual tourist magazine (again winning awards) and written many video scripts highlighting communities, telling history’s stories, and promoting products.
Gael’s clients have always appreciated her unique approach to projects, her ability to “theme” a story or promotional piece, and her skill for naming places, products, and companies. She likes to push her clients a bit because her philosophy is that the difference between good and great is the commitment to think and write fast and furiously first and edit later.
If she had to choose one reason for you to let her provide content for you, it’s that she can take your reader, your client, or your customer into the experience. She’s a storyteller who has the ability to make someone feel what it’s like to be in a place by helping them envision what it would be like to use your services. She can create a passion for your product.
Let Gael tell your story.
