Hi, I’m Amy.

I suppose this is where you get the nutshell version of me. Somewhat-relevant detail: I started my college career as an English major. That lasted until I had to take a course titled “Major British Writers Before 1800.” Somewhere between Beowulf and Othello, I decided I might better off pursuing something a bit more … interesting. And useful.

So I shifted gears and earned my bachelor’s degree in organizational communications from the University of Kansas. (Rock Chalk.) Over the next few years, I was a corporate writer by day and a graduate student by night, earning my MBA from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas.

I spent 10 years working in corporate communications before joining a financial services firm, working in Client Services. I eventually obtained my Series 6 and 63 as well as my life insurance license, and was a captive agent with AXA (now Equitable).

I liked helping people learn how to manage their money and plan for the future, but I missed writing. One day, it dawned on me: Why not combine my communications background with my financial knowledge and small business experience – and write for wealth management firms and financial advisors? In 2017, I jumped into full-time freelancing, doing business as Amy Ragland Communications.

Since then, I’ve worked on a wide variety of projects with a diverse client roster. As your writing partner, I’ll help you put your best foot forward, working beside you to craft compliance-friendly content that’s easily understood by your audience.
