Merritt E. Whitley

About Me

Hey there!

It's nice to make your virtual acquaintance. My name is Merritt Whitley and I’m a creative copywriter, content creator, and sometimes singer/songwriter from Kansas City — Go Chiefs!

I earned my bachelor's degree in journalism from Eastern Illinois University, where I also minored in public relations and advertising.

For nearly a decade now, I’ve worked as a writer, editor, and marketing and communications manager for several businesses and nonprofits. I've had the pleasure of working for some fantastic companies including, Pro Athlete, Sertoma Inc., Hearing Charities of America, KC Homes and Style Magazine, and A Place for Mom.

As a multifaceted writer and storyteller, I have the ability to create content for a variety of needs such as, videos, infographics, social media, print publications, e-newsletters, blog posts, and more.

I’m highly empathetic, collaborative, and love meeting new people. In my spare time, you can probably find me singing, working on home projects, watching documentaries, or drinking iced coffee.

What I fear most, I think, is the death of the imagination.
