Natalie Dawson

Founder of Elite Words

Natalie knew she loved writing at an early age, leading her to pursue a Bachelor of Communication majoring in Journalism at Western Sydney University. She was a formidable student and alumnus, and was welcomed back to the university as a project coordinator, communications officer, and web manager. She was wildly respected by her colleagues in this role, having driven successful campaigns and boosted conversion rates. However, her passion for writing needed something bigger. This is where Elite Words comes in. 

Natalie founded Elite Words in 2017, and so much has happened since the business’ tentative beginnings. Elite Words started as a one-person show, with Natalie providing copywriting services for her clients while also managing every other aspect of her business. Since then, Elite Words has grown to take on huge clients, including billion-dollar companies and government departments. With Elite Words, Natalie is able to fulfil her passion for helping others succeed through the power of elite stories, content strategies, and words. 

Throughout Natalie’s career, her focus has always been to foster genuine human connections and engagements through storytelling and strong communication strategies. This is why Elite Words is driven by the mission to empower businesses, organisations, and individuals to connect through elite words. Her results-driven mindset has led to fruitful endeavours as she found herself at the forefront of viral campaigns, impactful content marketing strategies, and successful storytelling pieces, whether they be feature articles, podcasts and interviews, or social media content. 

When Natalie isn’t writing, you’ll find her tending to her garden, cooking up a tasty dish, cheering on the football (soccer) or watching Netflix. While Natalie is often working at her computer, she’s also the adventurous type and loves to travel and get outdoors.

Ella Boyd

Senior Content Writer

Ella was born in London but grew up in the unique and vibrant culture of Sydney’s Inner West. Having completed her degree in English Literature and Writing Studies at the University of Sydney, Ella has a passion for writing and its power to change the world. Ella is about to commence her Masters in Publishing at the University of Sydney this year and is keen to eventually complete a PhD in English Literature. With a keen interest in volunteering, Ella has been involved in helping high school students to read, aiding in the running of large-scale sporting events, and assisting in crowdfunding campaigns for environmental education organisations.

Outside of work and studying, Ella regularly travels and competes in endurance events such as triathlons and is currently training for a 50km ultramarathon. Ella was interested in Elite Words for their integrity, diverse client base and the opportunity to expand her writing skills. Ella is passionate about content writing because of its variety, with no day being the same. She also loves copywriting for its focus on research skills that allow her to gain an understanding of nuanced topics that she would not previously have learnt about.

Jill Tengco

Content Writer

From an early age, Jill has had a passion for the visual and literary arts, inspiring her to complete a double degree in Media (Communications and Journalism) and International Studies at the University of New South Wales. Jill has always aspired to create positive impacts on different communities. This has led her to a variety of roles, from volunteering at schools in the Philippines to working in book publishing, to assisting social impact campaigns for Australian documentaries. However, she has always found herself gravitating toward the writing side of things. She loves the idea that stories can change the world and has found content writing to be the perfect career for her to both empower and impact people’s lives and learn new things about the world along the way.

When she is not writing, Jill finds any chance she can get to travel and experience unfamiliar places. She also spends her free time honing her painting and crochet skills or trying to create the perfect brownie recipe.

Riley Meredith

Account Manager

Riley has a keen interest in personal finance and entrepreneurship, which led him to begin studying a degree in Commerce and Economics at the University of New South Wales. He is a remarkable student and studies hard in all subjects he completes. As an Account Manager at Elite Words, Riley enjoys talking and relating to people on a daily basis. He loves being accountable for the growth of not only the business but also his personal skills.

When Riley isn’t hard at work at Elite Words or studying, he’ll either be playing basketball or watching the NBA. He loves learning about personal finance and entrepreneurship, regularly reading interesting books in this area.
