25+ years as a writer and editor, 8+ years focusing on inbound marketing content creation

Shari Hegland BW

Meet Shari:

Shari joined the JONES team in 2014 and has been immersed in all things inbound marketing and content creation ever since. As a writer and editor with more than 25 years of experience spread across news, public relations and marketing, her passion is bringing stories to life and making complex information relevant and useful. She has applied that passion to JONES clients Ricoh and Avanti, as well as a wide range of internal JONES communications over the past decade.

Shari’s background in newspaper, magazine and web writing ranges from explaining budgets and economic development strategies to drawing readers inside the mind of a recovering drug addict.

Beyond her JONES work, she is the editor of a regional magazine, has written for specialty publications across the Midwest and helped launch multiple renewable fuels enterprises, introducing investors and consumers to the possibilities involved.

She escapes the office as often as possible for the parks and trails surrounding her home, where she runs, hikes, trips, gets up again, brushes off the dirt (and occasional blood) and keeps going.
