Cathy E.

Writer with experience, ready to work for you
   United States


My name is Cathy, and I have been a provider on E-lance for over four years. I have a number of projects completed, and some great experience now as how it works to be a freelancer. I love to write on subjects that I am familiar with, but also like to write on more unfamiliar subjects, as I am always interested in learning new things.

I have a long history of writing during my career and in my academic career. My research skills are very well developed, but I am also able to write casually and conversationally if that is what the job requires.

I am now working only from home, and generally only accept one or two projects at a time so that I can concentrate and provide the best product to my buyers. I look forward to working with anyone who is open about what they want or need, and what more I need to do to accomplish that. I take criticism well, and as a learning tool, and am willing to rewrite my work if needed.
Service Description
My name is Cathy and I have just recently begun staying home full time, so I will have a lot of time to complete the project that I commit myself to. I am married with a child, but have a babysitter who I can easity access if my home if my work takes off as I am hoping that it will.

I hold a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Allegheny College in Meadville Pennsylvania, which is the town where I still live with my family. I have also been doing post graduate work at Capella University.

I have a good sense of humor, and know that if needed, I can include that in my writings to keep potential customers interested. My spelling and grammar are exceptional due to my 12th grade Composition teacher who took an old school approach to teaching and did not tolerate imperfection. I hated it at the time, but feel very fortunate now to have had that training.

My work history following my graduation has been primarily in the field of social work. I have worked with delinquent, and mentally ill adolescents as well as working with families living in poverty. I have provided them with links to services that will help them.

I am a voracious reader and have knowledge on many different topics. I feel that this will also be helpful in my writing.

I hope that your company is willing to take a chance on someone trying to take her career in a different direction.

I will complete all projects as they are presented to me and am not afraid to ask questions if needed. I will complete re-writes until you are pleased with the work I turn in. I look forward to working with you.
