    Writing has been a big component of my academic and professional career. In college, I provided guidance for struggling students as an on-campus writing tutor. When I wasn't in the library fixing syntax and grammar, I was in the newsroom fulfilling my duties as a content, layout, and copy editor. As an Instructional Technology Assistant at Carnegie Mellon University, I was tasked with writing up reports pertaining to my observations and duties. In my capacity as a risk manager with an insurance firm, I wrote reports detailing the extent of any given client's financial options within the legal confines of the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act. Given my extensive writing background, I can offer to: - proofread and edit your works - create original content - write articles - compose essays - research and present a given subject - analyze policy text - offer creative input My background suits me for a wide variety of writing-related work. Whether your linguistic needs call for innovation or standard boiler plate format, I have the skills necessary to accommodate them. I am familiar with APA, MLA, and Chicago styles.  less
