Writing: I have almost 15 years of professional writing experience, covering a variety of styles. I specialize in web content, magazine writing, eBooks, and descriptive copy. I am an effective and efficient researcher with the ability to provide great content with a short turnaround.
I am happy to write original content or rewrite current content to give it more sparkle. I am knowledgeable about SEO, having developed several small niche websites. I also know the trend is growing away from SEO and is more geared towards share worthy material for social media. Bearing that in mind, I strive to develop engaging, thought-provoking content that your visitors will be eager to share.
I love it when my work empowers others to live their best life. I bring passion and knowledge to every piece I write with the hope that it will help someone.
Graphics: I am a Photoshop addict and love designing info and quotes graphics. I also repair and restore old photos, create custom photo items like wood decor blocks, digital scrapbook pages, collage and more.
Other Services: I am an extremely fast typist 80+ wpm with some experience with general transcription. I have taken a course in both legal and medical terminology as well. If you need transcripts of meetings or things of that nature I am happy to work with you and will give you fast turnaround times.

Freelance / Self Employed
2000 - Present
I have spent the past 11 years being self-employed. I have pursued freelance writing, web-design, graphics design, jewelry-making and soap making. I have sold my handcrafted items at markets all over the midwest.
I am very self-motivated, organized and efficient. I have knowledge of running a small "mom and pop" business from the ground up and all that entails - which is basically everything because being self-employed means you are the "go to" person.
As a result I have a great deal of professionalism. I know how to work with people, how to sell, how to manage time and resources. When I am not working I am learning - in school and on my own. I take initiative to excel in everything I take on.
2006 - 2006
Worked part time doing sales and learning about nutrition and health products. I also studied alternative health, nutrition, and fitness extensively prior to working here due to a passion for that area.
