Service Description

I have a bachelor's degree in English from Oglethorpe University and while there was the editor for "The Tower", the school's literary magazine, and a staff writer for "The Stormy Petrel".

I have been recently hired to edit non-fiction submissions for Gallopade International, a children's book publishing company. Most of my previous freelance work has been volunteer based, helping friends by editing and proofreading both academic and creative works. Other work I've done has included writing promotional materials for various other creative projects of mine, including two bands of which I am part of. I've also volunteered helping the Data Support Specialist of Bear Creek Middle School by writing tests and configuring answer keys based off of CRCT standards.
