A Marketing Writer Passionate About Transforming Brands

In 2007, I did what my family and friends thought was insane. I quit my job as a New York City marketing director for a global powerhouse. My husband and I packed our belongings into a car, settled the cat onto a pillow on top of a pile of boxes, and drove to Virginia, uncertain of the future but knowing one thing: We would use our business acumen, marketing experience, and writing skills to transform the way B2B companies think about their content.

Life, as they say, has never been the same since.


About Jeanne Grunert

I write. I write all the time. When I’m not writing, I’m thinking about writing. I love words. I love teaching others the power of storytelling, brand building, and strategic marketing.

I spent the first part of my career as an advertising writer, then became a marketing manager specializing in direct and internet marketing. After ten years of leading marketing departments for some terrific companies in the New York City area, I moved with my family to Virginia and opened Seven Oaks Consulting.
I’m the author of I Believe You, a novel that has received widespread critical acclaim, a book of short stories call An Ancient Gift & Other Stories, and gardening books including Plan and Build a Raised Bed Vegetable Garden. In addition to my professional B2B writing at Seven Oaks Consulting, I write a column for Virginia Gardener magazine and curate and create a gardening blog, Home Garden Joy. Home Garden Joy has been voted one of the top 100 gardening blogs on the web.

I’m passionate about excellent customer service and being a dependable, go-to freelancer for my clients worldwide. I love working with and leading teams; creative challenges like my infamous “make our lightbulbs interesting” project; and being a reliable friend, business partner, and trusted confidante to my clients.

Life is good. Choose to be happy.
