Service Description

I am a stay-at-home mom looking for a challenge. I grew up in a newspaper my family owned and then majored in public relations and minored in creative writing at the University of Central Missouri. I spent the better part of my adult career in retail management and am attempting a second career. I would love any opportunity to use my writing skills to make a little money. I have experience writing essays, articles, news, features, reviews, press releases, brochures and web content.

I love all things eco-friendly and clean and live my life as organically as possible within my means and time constraints. I am a yogi and a runner and believe in proactive health care. I read everything I can get my hands on about fitness, health, living green, living clean, exercise and yoga. I am constantly looking for ways to lose a couple of extra pounds, save a few dollars or organize my closet. I also have an enormous passion for sports. I especially love football (both college and professional), college basketball and mixed martial arts.
