KATIE DYAL

THE EDITORS

FOUNDER, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF 

I’ve written in a journal for as long as I can remember. I always did my best in English and literature classes (even though I’m secretly still intimidated by grammar - shhh). I hold a bachelor’s degree in communications with a concentration in public relations and I minored in marketing. I love to read. I have a deep appreciation for sharp, witty quips, powerful lyrics, and anything that makes you think or feel something. 







Mostly because I didn’t know it was accessible to me. As you may gather, I’ve been aligned with this line of work way before I ever realized it. Sometimes, I think this creative world found me, or maybe it needed me to break through it.

Either way, I’m on a mission to make TCS the source for truly anyone’s written needs. I know what converts, I have the college degree, and I keep up with all the marketing trends but ultimately, I started this company because I love to write and I wanted to offer an edge to the industry — one that allows passionate, trusted writers to work with high-class, intentional brands. By being here, I hope that you, regardless of your industry, learn to appreciate and understand the power of the written word. And if you’re an aspiring writer, I hope to offer you an opportunity to follow your instinct and serve others by writing your heart out. 

Basically, I’m a true admirer of the written word — in all its forms, and I never ever would have thought I’d write for a living. 

MADELYN BAUMAN

EDITORIAL MANAGER

As Managing Editor, Madelyn oversees each writer within The Collective and runs the day-to-day editorial operations. With an innate passion and interest for words paired with exceptional leadership and organizational skills, Madelyn is an invaluable member of the TCS team and plays an integral part in fulfilling our mission and serving our clients. 

I can come across as a quiet person; an intense thinker who is sometimes tragically introspective — I’m sure you know the type. However, I’ve come to love being viewed as someone who is gentle and observant. 







As a child, my wildly intelligent wordsmith of a mother intentionally passed down her love for the English language (including a high emphasis on grammar) to me. Long story short, it ended up clicking and, despite chasing other paths and even holding a bachelor’s degree in finance, I’ve landed here. 

As Editorial Manager of this creative copywriting agency, I’ve officially merged my career with my passion for the written word. It feels quite full circle, and only something that could be a product of the Lord’s design. I am honored to serve as the final set of eyes on countless, diverse pieces and most importantly, witness each writer on our team flourish in their unique writing abilities. 


And, if you were to read any of my journals, you’d learn that I actually have a lot to say — I simply prefer to write it down.

It’s been an absolute pleasure getting to work with Katie. She was able to take my brain dump and turn it into something beautiful. My website copy sounds exactly like me and encompasses my brand so fully. Anyone who visits my website will know exactly what they’re getting when they decide to work with me.

I can say, with absolute certainty, that this will definitely NOT be the last time I work with TCS.

Founder of CASCADE METHOD

I am so thankful to have found TCS! A business coach urged me to start writing blogs in order to create organic SEO. Naturally, I felt obligated to do so, only to see how stressful this process was. I literally dreaded writing- doing everything else on my to-do list before attempting to write my blog. I felt like I was back in school and needed to write papers again… As hard as it was to let go of control, I took a leap of faith and searched for someone who could help. As I read the first blog she wrote for me, I felt like I was the one talking. She truly listened to me, keeping my fun, bubbly and passionate voice. I could not be more thankful and relieved to have found Katie! Not only is she an incredible writer, but she is extremely organized, which makes everything even better! I can’t recommend Katie enough!!

My biggest fear was that my voice wouldn’t be the same, but Katie read me like a book.

FOUNDER OF THE MKTG HOUSE

Samantha Alber

"Her perspective on digital marketing techniques are not textbook knowledge, but rather knowledge acquired from someone who has a real passion for the subject and applied themselves to learn every angle. She is pure value not only as a professional but as a person. She doesn’t limit herself from growing as a businesswoman and invests in her clients as much as she invests in herself. Hustle and heart truly do set her apart."
