The Professional Bio
I am a freelance editor, writer, and educator. My work involves communication and connection with the written word. Clients hire me to edit articles and blog posts and books, and to write profiles and stories on businesses and people.
My work with businesses and organizations involves both editing and writing: revising existing content, or helping tell the story behind the front office or home page on a website. I am good with ideas, and can help out with content marketing strategy so you can be a useful resource for potential customers.
My editing and evaluation of educational content combines my credentials and experience in public school and home-based early intervention. I have an M.A. in education and maintain teacher certification and licensure, so if you need someone familiar with education terminology and content, that’s me.
My education writing focuses on teaching children in their natural environment and finding rich learning experiences in everyday life. I contribute articles on family, education, and children’s health and wellness to parenting magazines that emphasize the opportunities parents have in everyday experiences to teach children life skills and reinforce classroom curriculum. I also write tips and stories on family, food, and managing home life with an unpredictable work schedule.
Project management work with content: I supported communication between clients/brands and influencers, proofreading content before approval and publication.
