About Jodi Torpey, M.A.

Experienced Writer, Trainer and Consultant

When I introduce myself at the beginning of every business writing class, I mention my experience as a professional writer. I tell participants that I struggle with procrastination, deadlines, and demanding editors, too.

Because I’ve found ways to overcome these writing challenges, I enjoy sharing my ideas with others. For more than 20 years I’ve helped writers at all levels change the way they think about their business writing.

My work takes me inside the training rooms of federal government agencies and private sector companies from Washington, D.C., to Juneau, Alaska.

I lead writing classes for the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Housing and Urban Development, Veterans Affairs, and the Government Services Agency (GSA).

Corporate clients have included Farm Credit, IBM Global Services, Hewlett-Packard, DirecTV, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

In addition, my background also includes experience as:

  • Instructional designer for staff and executive-level workshops for Fortune 500 companies and national associations;
  • Facilitator for Training the Trainer programs;
  • Author, ghostwriter or editor for six non-fiction books;
  • Freelance writer for hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles; and
  • Writer for online and printed marketing, training, and sales materials.

My master’s degree is in corporate communications (specializing in adult learning) and I also hold a bachelor’s degree in mass communications.

Participants in my business writing classes say they appreciate my down-to-earth, interactive training style:

“Jodi is an excellent instructor—she has impressive abilities and motivation. Jodi has an outstanding attitude and good humor that are evident in her personal commitment to excellence.”

“Jodi gets an A+. Very calm, cool, and collected. Many innovative ideas.”

“Jodi used relevant materials in her exercises that really helped. She was pleasant and made all feel comfortable. She explained each section well and provided tips for long-term use in our writing. She fully understood the writing process, terms and concepts and her examples were on target. She made the subject easy to understand and useful.”
