Welcome! I’m Jeanne Grunert, “The Marketing Writer,” president of Seven Oaks Consulting and a full-time freelance writer and journalist.

In 2007, I left my executive position at McGraw-Hill to embark on a journey that would take me to a 17-acre farm in Virginia and back to my roots as a journalist. I combine my experience and knowledge of marketing, management, and business with my writing talents to craft award-winning marketing writing and articles for my clients worldwide. I offer freelance writing services, ghostwriting services, copywriting services, article writing, and specialty journalism for print and web publications.
