Service Description

I always loved writing in my academic career. I received many accolades in Ohio's Power of the Pen program; I scored a perfect 800 on the SAT writing section. My college career afforded me many opportunities to build my writing skills, beyond standard report writing. My undergraduate research taught me to successfully apply for grants, analyze data, and produce interpretive results accessible to many audiences. I served in programming roles, learning how to write agendas and curricula, advertise wisely, and craft accompanying materials. Since college, I have served as a programmer and interpreter with my local Metroparks district, developing my communication style even further. I now have extensive experience not only in programming but in interpreting information to adults, children, and everyone in between. I recently had an article published in "Legacy," the journal for the National Association of Interpretation, as well as blog posts featured on several blogs. I have always had a knack for proofreading and am the go-to editor among my colleagues. Most importantly, though, I love to write and to help others communicate clearly. The caliber of my work will convey my passion and my professionalism.
