I have been an educator for the past three years in Texas Public Schools and overseas in Uganda during the summer of 2012. I have been a writer, avid reader, and grammar geek my entire life. Having recently quit teaching, I am extremely passionate about pursing my ambitions to write and create. I was accepted to New York University graduate school of Journalism after my undergrad, but in this economy, I was advised against the further debt and was highly encouraged by a Dallas News Editor to simply pursue my writing.

I have experience in everything from press releases to daily letters, to fundraising letters, proof-reading, editing, and ghost writing. I was also given the task of organizing and executing a book idea he had that was later launched as a marketing campaign which included research, lots of writing, dictation, transcribing, and interviewing students to tell their stories. Also having been an English teacher for the past three years, I have loads of experience with grammar, proof-reading, editing, making noteworthy comments, and creating power-point presentations, proposals, and coming up with creative ideas/implementing them. I also contribute almost bi-weekly for my church e-devotionals that are sent out each day, and have been writing creative pieces for various publications/personal blogs for the past 7 years. I would love any opportunity to write, create, brainstorm, edit, proofread, transcribe, or contribute pieces of nonfiction writing for you. Because I am relatively new at making this a full time living, I am flexible on pricing, and have all the time in the world to devote to bringing your latest project to perfection! Looking to gain more experience for the elements I consider myself an expert at, I am willing to work with you on timelines and price points so that we can get your project done in an efficient and timely manner, while also...
