I bring to the table something that not every editorial type has: the ability to write as well as edit. My background spans a variety of areas, including magazine writing and editing, web content writing and editing, copywriting, copy editing, book editing, press releases, web marketing, children's books, fiction writing, and poetry, to name a few. When it comes time for your project, though, I will carefully listen to your needs so that I can hone in on the type of writing or editing that you require.

I began my editorial career at Entrepreneur magazine, a major national publication based in Southern California. In the six years that I was there, I was a copy editor, staff writer, managing editor, and executive editor of the website. I wrote and edited everything from feature-length articles to cover lines for the magazine. I also contributed my expertise in small business to the community of business owners who sought advice through Entrepreneur.com.
From there, I became a freelance writer and editor and have continued my work for the small-business community ever since. I continue to write and edit regular columns and features for print and web publication. I have also expanded my expertise to include education writing, health issues, children's wellness, blogwriting, copywriting, and web content and social media writing.
I am a creative writer as well. While working on my master's degree in English, I completed a book of poetry along with numerous short stories and essays. It is this creativity that allows me to meet the needs of my clients with speed, accuracy, and finesse. I guarantee you will be pleased with the results.
I would welcome the opportunity to build professional relationships through eLance and add to my growing portfolio.
