Tess Wittler is a freelance copywriter who truly understands the construction industry. While attending college, Tess also worked part-time for a small sprinkler contractor – getting her hands dirty on the job-site, counting inventory in the warehouse and doing blueprint take-offs to get the material list for the next job.
From there, she continued her devotion to construction by working for first the Pennsylvania Builders Association and then the Building Industry Association of Lancaster County. She has extensive experience in many areas – from developing Home Show and Parade of Homes marketing campaigns and writing newsletter materials to analyzing legislation and creating concise messages for effective grassroots efforts.
From her 20 years of working alongside industry professionals, she knows the unique regulatory and time challenges (and headaches) contractors face on a daily basis. It is because of her in-depth understanding of the industry that she’s built a solid reputation of helping contractors become more proactive with their overall marketing, communications, and visibility efforts.
When not writing articles, newsletters, customer stories or other marketing materials, Tess enjoys traveling with her husband, exploring the beautiful trails of Pennsylvania and New England, and getting her butt smoked in Zumba class. Oh, and she’s just a tad bit fanatical about ice hockey, too!
