My resume consists of a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature from the University of Missouri – Columbia (Go Mizzou Tigers!), nearly five years of experience as a legal assistant, specializing in collections and personal injury, and, of course, my writing experience.
My professional writing career started with four posts a week for the Small Business Buzz in October of 2006, in addition to my full-time job as a legal assistant. When my first son was born in February of 2008, I wanted nothing more than to stay home with him. I chose, therefore, to utilize my writing skills and become a work-from-home guru! While my experience has been pretty vast since then (you can see all of my work on my Portfolio page), For three years I was the CEO/writer/head editor of a content marketing company called Ink’d Content; which closed in April 2014 in order for my business partner and I to focus on other pursuits. I’ve also always had several private clients, including magazine publications – all while balancing a photography business, running a non-profit that I founded, and a full life with two little boys and an amazing husband!
As anyone can see from my writing portfolio, I have experience writing on a broad range of topics and I am willing to tackle practically anything.
I excel in the area of research. Nearly every writing position I’ve maintained since I began my freelance career in October 2006 has required research to provide a strong factual base for the content I produce. In fact, many of my previous and current writing contracts require proof of adequate resources in order to verify information. My social skills also come in handy when conducting interviews.
I also have premium experience with creating content that maximizes search engine optimization (SEO). In other words, whether it’s articles, blog posts or simple web page content, I can easily include the necessary key terms and variations to help your website obtain the best search engine results possible. I also work with my clients to keep SEO quality high by arranging for content updates on a regular basis.I’m also well connected through online social media, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. I frequently post the articles I write for my private clients as a means to bring in more traffic to their websites, as well as make my writing style and expertise known to the public.
Please take the time to view my portfolio and get a feel for the content I may be able to provide for you. I assure you that, should you enlist my services for your writing project, you will not be disappointed in the results.
