Thoughts from Marisa:
I consider myself an "out of the box" thinker, which assists me in completing projects quickly, creatively, and going beyond each client's expectations. In essence, I treat each new endeavor with the level of detail and care that I would if it were my own project. Yes, I am a bit of a perfectionist.
I am very adept at anticipating what a client will need and delivering in a quick and friendly manner. I always encourage the client's feedback and suggestions.
Of the roughly 25,000 providers in Elance's Writing category, I achieved the milestone of becoming ranked #3 after working on Elance for only one year.
Most of the work that I deliver is written and edited by me personally. However, for larger projects, I often draw upon the talents of a small group of US-based writers with whom I have developed close relationships.
I have been a freelance writer and editor for 11 years. I instructed writing skills, editing and ESL at the college level for 3 years. Additionally, I've taught children and teenagers creative writing, acting and screenplay development. Teaching students was a great thing for me, as it helped hone and develop my skills.
