Mrs. Roxanne Yelvington

United States - Last active: 09/28/2014 - Tests: 3

With a MA and BA in history, I have extensive experience professional and academic writing and researching. I completed four long-form, heavily-researched writing projects. I published a review within an acclaimed history journal in 2012. I also write creatively, and have had two poems and one short story published in independent magazines. I love to write, and would be happy to lend my writing knowledge to those seeking ghost writers, content writers and editors. My four years tutoring at the PPCC Writing Center further made me an efficient editor, content reader, and fact-checker. This experience also allowed me to become incredibly familiar with English and citation style formatting: APA, MLA, CSE, CMS, AP. I further presented my own material about writing and tutoring at two CWWTC conferences in 2012 and 2010. I have instructed at the college level, and gained experience in time management, databases, and HR paperwork through that employment. I further have over ten years of experience in customer service, ranging from restaurant management to clerical work. I am comfortable with web technology, the Microsoft Office Suite and clerical duties.

United States - Last active: 09/05/2013 - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 5

Over the last 12 years, I have developed a varied skill set, which is applicable to a wide variety of competencies that I have had the pleasure of performing in both formal and informal settings. From leadership in small business to creative entrepreneurial endeavors to start-up consultation and more, I often find myself exploring new horizons, which keeps my brain active and engaged. My core competency is in creative writing, speaking and singing. I also have experience in the following areas: brainstorming, designing, testing, implementation and troubleshooting. I could also bore you with a long list of other skills that might seemingly have nothing to do with each other; however, I feel it would be more effective to say that these skills have contributed to my ability to flex into whatever prospect I am currently exploring. I strive to serve others instead of serving myself. Joshua Pattillo – Your happiness is my success!™
