The Voice Bureau Coterie
We collaborate selectively.
Traits we value in collaborative partners: Precision. Integrity. Open-mindedness. Excellence. Self-awareness. Warmth.
May we introduce you to The Voice Bureau‘s core team . . .
I’m the voice of our brand on social media, including everything you’re reading here on this site.
INFJ. Pisces with double Sagittarius. Enneagram Type 4 (The Individualist) with a 3-wing. Writer, dog mom, and home cook. Huge Brandi Carlile fan. Learning to feel safe in the great, green outdoors.

Katie Mehas. Project Curator.
Katie is the Voice Bureau’s Project Curator. She manages our client projects’ workflow, liaises between our clients and our writers, and generally keeps our Excellence meter bouncing at the high end. Katie is an experienced project manager, magazine editor, and writer. She’s a voracious reader, lifelong gamer, and INTJ with a passion for early-afternoon naps with her daughter, Avery; late-night dinners with her husband, Nick, and carefully color-coded spreadsheets on her laptop, HAL.
Katie possesses an enviable balance of left- and right-brainedness, keen wit, and a lovely, clearheaded communication style. She and her husband live in St. Petersburg, Florida with their daughter and an ill-behaved menagerie of pets.
Melissa Black. Virtual Concierge.
As Virtual Concierge, Melissa orients and schedules Voice Bureau clients, fields inquiries, troubleshoots tech, and sees that the client experience is running snag-free. She’s the CEO of Black Ink Virtual, where she puts to great use her decades of experience working with executives, and her talents around operations, marketing, management, web design, tech, and social media strategy.
Melissa is that hard-to-find mix of gracious, whip smart, and completely deliberate. She’s a dog lover, a Dave Matthews Band super fan, and a travel and photography buff. She lives in beautiful Rhode Island with her husband-and-business-partner Bob.
The Writers of the Voice Bureau.
Our writers are a hand-selected team of talented and experienced creative professionals. They each possess an impressive portfolio of professional writing experience for B2B and B2C markets.
Each of our writers is personally vetted, invited, and endorsed by me (Abby). Every single of piece of work our writers create flows across my desk and under my pen before it’s presented to clients. We facilitate a smooth, seamless experience from beginning to end.
Once you become a copywriting client, it’s our pleasure to refer you to our circle of established, gifted web design professionals. We’re happy to give input on bringing your visual brand identity to life.
Bottom line: we work with people we admire and completely trust with our clients’ businesses.
My eye is always casting about for fantastic writing and design talent. If you are an experienced copywriter or a web designer interested in collaborating with the Voice Bureau, please send us a note introducing yourself, with a link to your portfolio.
