Awesome Team

  • Leah Levy

    Founder & Head Writing Consultant

    Hi, I’m Leah. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. I write for businesses of all sizes, and help individuals find their creative voices.

    Here are a few stats, for those who like that sort of thing.

    I have

    1. A dual BA in Brain & Cognitive Sciences and Creative Writing from the University of Rochester
    2. A Masters of Fine Arts in Fiction Writing from the University of Washington
    3. Run my own successful businesses tutoring and coaching students of all ages for a number of years.
    4. A number of fiction publications under my belt and hundreds of marketing and small business blogs published. (Yes, literally, hundreds, I don’t understand how it go that high either).

    What I do

    1. Write blogs, in-depth articles, ads and web copy for solopreneurs, small businesses and major corporations such as Microsoft, Macy's, and SimpliSafe. (I’ll even write them for your wedding website, if you so desire, with plenty of flare).
    2. Help applicants apply to private high schools, university, and graduate school find their voice and tell their story so that they can get into their top programs.
    3. Help students of all ages (yep, from elementary school on up to octogenarian grad students) write the best essays and creative stories, novels and play that they can. Want more?

    All of my life I’ve had to deal with two people living inside my body. No, not in a freaky, alien kind of way. In a left brain vs. right brain sort of way.

Who Loves Us

Over the past year, I have been fortunate to work Leah. To say she is an excellent writer would be an understatement. She brings a new level of creativity and finesse to the new internet marketing age. These skills transcend into her work at JustStart. She helps applicants stand out in the arduous admissions process. In a few years when I apply for business school, Leah will be the first person I call.

Alec Sandler, Business Development Analyst, AcisTek Corporation

Leah was super professional, timely, and a fabulous editor. I asked for a more qualitative critique of a children's book I am working on, and her feedback was very clear and constructive without being disheartening. She has a wonderful ability to reflect strengths while also highlighting areas of need. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Sarah A, Writer in Need of Book Editing,

Leah tutored my daughter in reading for nearly a year, and I saw my daughter make great progress, and have so much fun she didn't even know she was working! Leah instinctively knew where to focus her time and energy with my daughter's learning difficulties and was able to give her foundational blocks that my daughter will use for the rest of her life. Thanks, Leah!
