Service Description

I am a multi-talented and vastly experienced freelancer. I have been working as a professional writer for ten years, and have experience in a variety of settings, from creating academic and reference articles on a range of subjects, to writing informative current event pieces, niche blogs, medical articles, product descriptions, and website copy. My research skills are exemplary and I am very detail focused and client oriented. I am capable of working to strict deadlines and always ensure assignments are completed to the highest standard, with the goal of building a long term relationship with my clients. I am an experienced editor, fully conversant with APA, CMS, and MLA. A small selection of my writing and editing clients include eBay Inc., Toys R Us, Demand Media, LiveStrong, Amazon (uk, us, and au), and Answers.com.

Aside from being an exceptional writer and editor, I am also a knowledgeable, hands-on, experienced project manager. I have been at the helm of a number of content creation projects over the course of my career, managing teams of writers, editors, researchers, and title creators.

I also have extensive experience as a staffing manager and care coordinator for a large health care agency, assessing the needs of clients, and matching the most suitable staff across functional elderly, mental health, learning disability, physical disability, dementia, and nursing settings.
