My Story

Welcome—I’m glad you’re here! My name is Hailey and I’m a full-time freelance writer and content marketer who writes primarily about healthcare, digital marketing, education, and pets. I love utilizing my hands-on experience as a “professional” chronic illness patient, the former site coordinator of a nonprofit that tutors refugee kids, and a lifelong pet owner to bring a valuable perspective to the table.

Freelancing wasn’t always (or ever) my plan. Fiction is my first love, and so far I’ve had one middle grade book traditionally published. In high school, I also considered getting an exercise science degree or working in elementary education. But then chronic illness happened and kept getting worse, so I needed a career path that would be easier on my body—and then I fell in love with content marketing. Now I couldn’t imagine doing anything else, even if I was healthy. 

I’m a storyteller at heart, but I’m also a self-motivated, detail-oriented productivity freak. Hence, The Hardworking Creative—and plus, I’m a complete nerd about all things content marketing. Whether you need an SEO-optimized blog post or an ebook to act as a lead mag, I can handle it! I’m good at what I do and I’m fun and easy to work with. Just ask my clients.

When I’m not writing, I’m reading, belting musical theatre songs, or snuggling with my cat Windy (who acts as my faithful WFH companion). And that’s my story. What’s yours? Send me an email at haileyhudson@thehardworkingcreative.com and let’s discuss how I can help tell it—and then head to my portfolio and check out my work. Thanks for stopping by!
