As an award-winning advertising copywriter, Bree Housley has mastered “the voice” of moms, kids, dads, and dudes in order to sell products ranging from Pepsi to mustache wax. She has also had the pleasure of writing ad campaigns featuring some of the most quick-witted ladies in showbiz, including Amy Sedaris and Rachael Harris.
Housley always knew she had a passion for entertaining others through the written word, so after graduating with a degree in advertising at Iowa State University in Ames, she traded in her snowsuit for 0 SPF suntan lotion and attended the widely respected advertising industry darling, Miami Ad School, in Florida. At MAS, she learned to write snappy TV, print, radio, and web ads for a broad audience. She also dabbled in stand-up comedy and realized that stories of her small-town childhood made people laugh. A lot.
Along with her sister, Courtnee, Housley wrote a successful blog, Fifty2Resolutions, to document their goal of accomplishing 52 resolutions in 52 weeks. The first week Fifty2Resolutions hit the web, it was ranked number 55 on Wordpress's top 100 growing blogs of the day.
Today, Housley lives in Chicago with her husband, Eric. After a decade of crafting product-focused copy, she is thrilled to write in her own voice about a subject that means the world to her.
