I'm a young, savvy writer and communication expert who's lived all over the U.S. I've been a staff writer and/or freelancer since 2011 and have worked in communications for more than a year. I earned my Bachelors in Communications while serving alongside my husband as an Army wife. I'm up to writing almost anything but I truly enjoy flex style blogging, news writing and content creation for sites/blogs on fashion, lifestyle and health/nutrition. I previously worked for a mortgage lending company as the communications coordinator. Much of my job required research of partners information, data entry, database updating, etc. I'm sort of a jack of all trades with writing being my passion. However, I take extreme pleasure in administrative duties as they are/were required in my current and previous roles. I'm proficient in Word, Excel, Powerpoint and many other tools for administrative duties. I'm still working on uploading my entire portfolio but please browse what is available now to get an idea of my writing style (which varies by project). My hard work and dedication makes me the best fit for clients. I LIVE by a deadline. I try my best to always beat the deadline by a day or two, submit a draft for your review and then make any necessary changes by the actual deadline. My clients satisfaction IS my job. I'm always open to negotiation of price and love to have repeat clients. Hit me via messenger so we discuss any opportunities you may have available. Thanks all!
Never settle for less than excellence. To any article or project I bring not only a wealth of knowledge and experience but, even more importantly, pride in my work and a refusal to produce anything less than the best. I have a Bachelor of Science in psychology with a minor in law. My concentration on the 'people sciences' has provided a broad understanding of people. My time as the Op/Ed editor at the college paper cemented my ability to write compellingly. I also have over 30 years in the home construction/improvement/DIY department. I specialize in how-to articles that are second to none. My experience and knowledge allows me to produce clear, professional articles in a wide variety of topics. Whatever you need, I can -- and will -- deliver. You will find I exceed your expectations!
I am a former English teacher and I love to write. I can take words and twist them and form them like clay to mold whatever a client wants. I love writing articles that range from casual blog-style to textbook formality. I spent years grading others writings in the classroom and have a keen eye when it comes to editing/revising. I am also versed in dealing with hostile complaints in a way that the recipient does not feel as if they are being victimized or mistreated but still clearly and quickly resolves the situation in the best interest of both parties. Highlighted Skills: Love of the written word Professionalism Wit Flexibility Timeliness Education: BS in English from Tarleton State University - Stephenville, TX Experience: English teacher - 2007-2011 District English Language Arts Curriculum Grade Level Director - 2008-2011 Customer Service Representative, Complaints Department for Online Company - Current
I am a professional journalist, writer, editor and photographer. My main goal is to say "yes" to every request I can, and to make sure my clients are 100% satisfied with the work I do for them. I am used to working with clients that have a tight schedule and short deadlines. I am an expert in English writing and editing. I have eight years experience working with Gannett publishing (USA Today publisher) as a writer and photographer, and have two books released through a traditional publisher. I'm also very tech savvy and an expert at ebook publishing, formatting, and editing. I help clients with every ebook format including Kindle, iPad, Nook and all others. I also have strong creative writing skills, and have experience writing everything from resumes to full novel length works. I'm also an avid user of Facebook and I've got nearly 25,000 followers on Twitter. (I have no problem promoting my clients on social media by the way). My photojournalism work has given me expert experience in the use of Adobe Photoshop. I started my career in crisis communications, working with the Department of Defense and with test pilots. I have a very strong public relations background. I can edit or write everything from press releases to complete communication plans as well. On Press Releases: It's vital to get someone with experience to write your press release. There are a lot of marketing "gurus" who have never worked in a newsroom. Real editors spend seconds on each email they get, and it's extremely important that what they read sounds like a news story. Your release needs to be ready to run, with little or no effort from the editor. This means leaving out the "PR speak", and customizing it for the publication or website that receives it. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. There are great writers on odesk who might seem expensive, but you'll be much happier with the results you get if you choose quality over quantity. (Even if you choose one of them over me). On Writing: My experience as a journalist, editor, and an author gives me a unique background to help almost any client who wants real quality. On Payments: I work with fixed price or hourly payments. For fixed price, I will send a sample of the release, and if my client is satisfied, I will send a PDF of my first draft. I have no problem in writing a revision so that my clients get exactly what they want. If you have no feedback in hiring yet, I will ask for an hourly payment. On Getting Hired: I don't see getting hired as just another job. I like to get excited about projects, and if I don't think we're a good fit, I won't take the job. If I work with a client, my name and reputation are at stake, and I take that very seriously. Questions? If you ever have any questions or need advice, you can always send me a message, and even if you don't hire me, I'll do all I can to help.
