Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $16

Thanks for stopping by my profile! My name is Kate, and I have a great love for words. I've been writing ever since I learned the alphabet.

Currently I write a weekly article for a website based on health and wellness. In the past, I managed a blog for a transportation compliance firm I was associated with (among other duties), and was an assistant editor for a consumer news website.

I have experience with Wordpress, SEO, research, and more. In a sense, I am a Jack of Many Trades.

My office administration experience includes email management, file management, setting appointments, managing calendars, handling inbound and outbound calls, creating email lists, using the Microsoft Office Suite, project management, building solid and lasting relationships with clients, social media management (specifically Twitter, Facebook, and Google+), blog maintenance, creating company documents, flyers and brochures, and building a policy and procedure manual.

If there is an administration skill that you seek that is not listed, I am a quick learner and eager to expand my skill set.

My experience in the trucking industry has been focused on obtaining permits ( including oversize permits ), licensing, fuel and mileage tax reporting, obtaining operating authorities (both intrastate and nationwide - including Canadian authority), compliance assistance, USDOT and state audit assistance, education about state and federal regulations, assistance with disputing violations ( including tickets, citations, and fines ), and various other toes of consulting. If you don't see it listed here, I've probably had experience with it.
