    I'm an editor and writer with several years of experience working on publications spanning a variety of subjects. With a BA in English/Editing and an MS in Journalism, I have a strong command of the English language and am incapable of missing a deadline. In my most recent job, I had the opportunity to work as the editor of a quarterly 130-page magazine, for which I performed all of the editing and proofreading tasks. I was given a great deal of independence and responsibility in that position, which required me to be self-motivated and judicious with my time.  less
