Courtney Schiffres

Copywriter, VSA Partners

Courtney studied Film & Writing at The University of Wisconsin - Madison and later took up a post-production internship where she quickly realized she would not be editing the next big blockbuster hit as she had imagined. She then took a few odd jobs and attended night classes for design not knowing what path she should be on. She ended up working in a sales role at a design & architecture publication, but something still felt like it was missing. Realizing advertising combined her passions for writing, film and design, she decided to give it another go and made her way to Chicago Portfolio School to become a copywriter. Her path suddenly became clear and the rest is history. Courtney currently works at VSA Partners on clients like Goose Island Beer Co., Golden Road Brewing Co., Hornitos Tequila, 2 GINGERS Irish Whiskey and Kleenex.
