Overview

I'm a hardworking content writer and editor with a degree in journalism and 7+ years professional experience. From press releases to feature articles and and web copy, I'm comfortable and capable of writing in a variety of styles. When it comes to editing, I'm detail oriented and thoroughly familiar with AP and Chicago.

I've worked in publishing for several years, so my proofreading skills are well honed. I even have some design skills to my name! My hobbies include readying, fiction writing, and travel.

I'm happy to discuss your needs!...

Service Description

I have a degree in journalism and several years of freelance copywriting and design experience. I can help guide you through the entire process, from content development to editing and even web design. I am a net native, and familiar with several blogging platforms. Most importantly, I have a passion for getting things done and getting them done the right way.

My professional experience includes a six-month comprehensive rewrite of a university's website. This included both drafting new content and rewriting existing content to bring it in line with the university's brand message. I've also written software end-user documentation and many, many press releases.
