I'll worry about all of those pesky spelling, punctuation, and grammar rules so you don't have to.
I am a communications professional with more than 12 years of experience in writing and editing. I earned my B.A. in English from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2006 and went on to obtain my M.A. in English (with a concentration in Literacy, Technology, and Professional Writing) from Northern Arizona University in 2011. I am completely confident that I can use my skills and natural attention to detail for your benefit!
Words have power and can be used in many ways. Over the years I have truly enjoyed learning the rules behind our language and how to use them to mold my own writing into what I wanted it to be and to help others achieve success with their writing as well.
I began my career in communications shortly after earning my BA in 2006. I spent more than a decade working for a local non-profit association in several different positions, all of which allowed me to use and develop my skills as a writer and editor.
I was responsible for all of the association's communication functions including writing, editing, and/or formatting a variety of newsletters, a biannual magazine, media outreach, and other projects. I also did freelance work at a local paper for several years.
I am looking to take on new projects where I can use my knowledge and skills to help others.
I am proficient in AP style and use it on a daily basis. I do the majority of my freelance work in the evening or on weekends.
