Ivy Decker

Ivy graduated Summa Cum Laude from The Ohio State University in May 2016 with a degree in English and dual minors in Professional Writing and Creative Writing. While in college, she gained editorial experience as Editor-in-Chief and senior staff member of The Sundial Humor Magazine. Additionally, she completed an editorial internship with Columbus, Ohio's (614) Magazine where she pitched and composed original articles as well as other editorial and copywriting tasks. Ivy also developed copywriting and marketing skills in her professional writing courses, which focused on writing for the "work world." Now that Ivy is truly part of that "work world" that everyone advised was coming, she's excited to use her writing background to develop the voice and values of the brands she represents, including ATA. In her free time, Ivy writes fiction and comedy, plays the ukulele, and hangs out with her cat, Rey.
