Hi! My name is Maureen and I am a skilled writer, proofreader, blogger, social media user, and researcher with a Master's Degree in International Studies. I'm a great multi-tasker and can provide projects in a short turn-around time. English is my first language. I have significant writing experience from research articles to blogs to e-books and have worked as a freelancer for worldwide organizations including World Bicycle Relief. I love projects that have anything to do with current events, international affairs, and travel! I am based in the Midwestern USA and located in CST time zone.
I am not only an experienced and skilled writer, but also an editor with great organizational and analytical abilities who can meet deadlines and challenges with creativity and resourcefulness. I am seeking a variety of freelance writing and editing work to continue to expand my portfolio. I ensure delivery of top-notch content in areas such as blog articles, business writing, news articles, press releases, website content, correspondence, editing projects, and more. Below is a brief summary of my qualifications: • I have spent more than 14 years honing my writing and editorial skills: I started out as a newspaper journalist. After earning a Master’s Degree, I took a position planning conference content for high-level university executives, during which time I gained experience in marketing writing. Later, I served as a senior editor over multiple monthly trade newsletters on regulatory compliance topics. • I am a self-starter: I launched a freelance writing business to serve the communications needs of a range of companies, which includes writing web content, editing articles, producing press releases, managing media contacts, and leveraging social media for exposure. My clients include Gale Custom Content/Cengage Learning, Gregg Albracht Photography, and GreenPea Baby Boutique. • I am a highly organized and resourceful editorial project manager with strong technical skills: In my editorial roles, I am the person everyone relies on to target messaging, edit and refine content, and review the final product. I also am highly skilled at using Wordpress and SEO strategies and have experience with Quark, HTML and website content management.
I am a freelance professional writer and entrepreneur born and bred in the United States of America. My business (The Gardener Group) provides high quality copy, content, and editing services to the general public. We also provide business consulting/coaching, market development, and brand management solutions to a variety of small and large businesses. Our consistent focus and our bottom line is on People, Planet, and Profit (in that order). Understanding that what we do impacts our environment and finding "simple sustainable solutions" to the problems we all face is what drives us. Our motto: Love Is Always The Answer. My professional history and experience is mostly in the areas of sales and marketing, but I've also performed many other fascinating functions throughout my career. I spent 10 years in professional real estate (including sales, investment, and brokerage) and have extensive experience in the hospitality industry as well. I spent a couple years pursuing micro-farming and organic food distribution as a career and have worked with a host of world class companies. These include Food and Thought, RE/MAX International, The Walt Disney Corporation, Bloomin' Brands, ArtVan Furniture, New Horizons Computer Learning Centers, and more. Personally, I have an affinity for travel and am a bit of a foodie. I have lived and worked in 8 states to date. My favorite, thus far, was Hawaii where I spent time as a professional fisherman and a surf instructor on the islands of Oahu and Kauai respectively. I hope to sail the world one day (which is one of the reasons I do what I do). I love good food, books, films and adventure. My writing is constantly being perfected and is a source of great joy for me. I recently decided to sharpen my pencil a bit more and re-enrolled at Grand Valley State University after nearly 2 decades in the business sector. There, I am on track to complete a bachelor's degree in Creative/Professional writing by April of 2014. The abundant resources available to me there are a real asset. I have been blessed to be professionally coached by some great men throughout the years: Brian Buffini, Paul Starner, Floyd Wickman, and Brian Kelly to name a few, but my greatest coaches have been my parents and my King: Jesus. I am a family man (father of 5) who likes to help people achieve their goals and I hope to leave this world better for having been in it. I'd like to help you if I can and will always do my best to serve you and treat you fairly. I am committed to excellence and driven to provide you with the best service available on the market today.
I have more than 14 years of expertise in developing, writing and editing communications and content for a variety of audiences, including healthcare executives and food industry professionals. In 2013, I left the corporate world, and for the past year I have been freelancing for numerous publications and websites. Some of my clients include Mid Atlantic Dairy Association, International Council on Active Aging (ICAA), Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE), and McNeil Media Group, publisher of Gwinnett Edge Magazine. Specialties include writing, editing, social media, managing special projects online and in print.
I love proofreading. I love taking a document and polishing it until it really sings. I have honed my skills through a lengthy career as a copy editor at newspapers across the country. But I don't get the opportunity to do as much proofing as I would like, so I've headed online to hang out my shingle. I'm not really particular about the subject of the text I'm proofing, but I feel I would be of extra value in the realm of biological sciences, given my educational background and my years spent as a freelance medical transcriptionist. I am happy to edit at whatever level you are looking for; I can make detailed stylistic suggestions, or just hunt down typos and errors in grammar. I think you'll be satisfied that whatever you have written will be in pristine condition once I am done looking at it.
