Corrie Benfield brings a deep background in journalism and legal writing to her role as a Web Content Editor with Consultwebs, where she edits and writes a wide array of content that is search engine-optimized and informative to those in need of legal help.
“I think Consultwebs has put together a ‘Dream Team’ for law firms that want to enhance their Internet presence,” Corrie says. “Our team offers the perfect combination of attorneys, marketing experts, tech-savvy professionals, former journalists – we cover all of the bases.”
Born in Santa Ana, California, Corrie spent most of her younger years in Statesville, North Carolina. As an adult, she has lived in Tampa, Florida, where she earned her degree in Journalism (with a minor in Graphic Design) from the University of South Florida.
Prior to joining Consultwebs, Corrie spent 10 years as a newspaper editor, developing the valuable skill of breaking down complicated information so that it can be easily digested by readers and prompt them to take action.
She also served as the Director of Communications and Public Relations for a voluntary bar association, where she worked closely with attorneys on a daily basis to boost their profiles in the community and promote them as leaders in their practice areas.
In her spare time, Corrie enjoys spending time with her husband, Joe, and their two dogs, Oliver and Lucy. She also loves to travel, explore new foods and try new things.
“I am also a craft fanatic,” she adds. “I like painting, sewing and refinishing furniture – anything that makes a mess!”
