I drafted our association's first-ever style guide, which is a hybrid of AP and Chicago, and consider myself an expert in both.

I have also worked extensively with non-native English speakers to edit non-fiction works, theses, dissertations, and research. In addition, much of my time during graduate school was spent in the Writing Workshop, assisting students with various composition projects.

I am also well versed in social networking platforms and blogging.
