I have worked with Nancy in her role as an employee of the Minnesota State Bar Association and more recently as a freelance lawyer. I recommend her without reservation. She is professional, personable, diligent, and smart. Feel free to contact me if you are considering hiring her for a freelance project or professional employment position.

I am the Executive Director of the Minnesota State Bar Association, and am writing to recommend Nancy Hupp who worked at the Minnesota State Bar Association for approximately seven years. She began as an editor and was later promoted to director of one of our most popular online services. Nancy was a valuable employee who contributed to the growth of our resources and established processes for the design and review of the forms we provide to members.

Nancy has a fine mind, wit, integrity, and skill as a writer. She has the capacity to both digest the details and appreciate the nuances as she plies her trade, whether for a technical undertaking or for something more creative.
Nancy captured the essence of what we were trying to communicate. We wanted to streamline our message by keeping the critical information and eliminating what was unnecessary and repetitive. It’s hard to do that with your own work—someone on the outside can take a fresh view and Nancy did that.
I have had the pleasure of working with Nancy through two different associations. First with Entrepreneurial Advantage while working on Project CAP, and then later when I sub-contracted some work to her through my current position with Insurance Marketing Partners. I’ve found Nancy to be very professional and easy to work with. She has a good understanding of the insurance business and can write good copy. I have no reservations in recommending Nancy to others.
Nancy Hupp’s most enviable talent isn’t just an ability to write well, but an ability to write prolifically and compellingly in a demanding and often ambiguous environment. Her dedication to creating great work under any circumstances allowed her to produce some amazing content for Project CAP — including some of the most engaging concepts and mind-grabbing opening paragraphs I’ve ever read. My only regret is that her time with us was far too short.
Nancy was able to learn our project needs quickly and synthesize down a number of documents for us. Her best asset is her ability to take lengthy, wordy documents and boil them down in simple, easy to read paragraphs. She is really great at taking a concept and giving you a simple way to describe it or an easy way to read. Furthermore, I appreciated her honest input and straightforward feedback.
