Young journalist and precise editor
   United States
  |   North Aurora, IL

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $15

I'm a graduate of the University of Illinois building her career in freelancing. I graduated cum laude with departmental distinction in religious studies, and I've also got a strong background in news writing and editing. I was a Dow Jones Newspaper Fund Editing Intern and a Fulbrighter in Vietnam, where I taught English speaking and composition to university students. I specialize in editing the writing non-native English speakers, but I love all different projects.

I can't wait to start working with you!
