Service Description

After ten years of teaching high school English and writing, I left the classroom to pursue a freelance writing and educational training career. My experience as a teacher combined with my Masters degree in writing have provided me an excellent grasp of grammar, spelling, and style issues. I am best at revision and editing, and have a love for creative writing of both fiction and nonfiction work.

Education still holds a special place in my heart as I have been training teachers for the past eight years as well as designing Language Arts curriculum. In 2007 I was awarded Florida English Teacher of the Year. I still work with students and teachers via the four websites I manage.

I hope to put my experience and expertise to work for you.



I am skilled in many aspects of publishing as I was the designer, writer, and editor of a multitude of educational material across the state of Florida.

I have expertise in:
Blogging
Ebook
Editing
Copywriting
Creative Writing: Short Stories and Poetry
Curriculum Design
Digital Media
Essay Writing
Graphic Design
Manual and Training Material
Power Point Presentations
Proofreading
Revision
