Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $25

I received a Masters Degree in Education/Instructional Technology but soon realized that teaching wasn't my calling. I'm more of a behind the scenes person. I enjoy helping others express their ideas. I get a sense of satisfaction from taking a rough manuscript and transforming it into work ready for publication.

My experience includes both print and online media. I have worked with teams in 25 countries and excel at collaborating with non-native English writers.
