Service Description

My specialties include content writing for online articles and blogs, as well as website copy and social media content. With a graduate degree in English and experience as a professional educator and tutor, I am also skilled at academic writing and designing instructional materials.

I also provide editing services that maintain the author's original voice while making the copy sing! As a professional writing consultant at a university, I am qualified and have a great deal of experience in editing doctoral dissertations and academic articles for publication.

Through my work as the primary content writer at a marketing and public relations firm, I also have experience with developing content for press releases, email blasts, brochures, newsletters, crisis communication materials, and radio and television scripts.
