I am dynamic and creative with a lively conversant writing style. By trade I am a highly skilled culinary professional who has been living and traveling abroad for over seven years with my family and have a wealth of travel and expat experiences from which to draw. I derive a great amount of pleasure from writing and I am pleased to be expanding my professional accomplishments to include writing as a career.
I graduated summa cum laude in 2011 from NYU with a major in English and American Literature. My strengths are in research, creative nonfiction, and editing of all levels. I value prompt, clear communication very highly and do my best to truly understand and fulfill the vision for each project I undertake.
Talented copywriter with several years of blog, copywriting, and business experience, as well as editing and proof-reading, and some photography (mainly with food blogging). Flexible schedule and good communication and research skills.
Creative, academic and journalistic writing, proofreading and editing performed under tight deadlines with strict attention to detail. Strong research skills. Additional experience includes blogging, social media posting, crowdfunded campaign writing, ebook writing, newsletter writing, and more. Academic background in gastronomy, food policy, English literature, history and religion.
I am looking for a career with growth potential in adult education such as corporate training, post-secondary classes and vocational classes. Ideally, I would like to develop curriculums and course content for e-learning and online delivery. Since I have enrolled in the Organizational Learning and Instructional Technology program, I have become familiar with the ADDIE model and several theories of adult learning such as Knowles’ Andragogy and Friere’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed. I have also become familiar with Gagne’s work in World War II and his development of the Nine Event of Instruction. I have looked at multiculturalism in the Distance Education and how to meet the needs of students from many backgrounds and cultures. I am familiar with many typical Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. I have also used SharePoint and Prezis for effective classroom presentations. We have worked on many real world problems regarding distance education and how to make it effective to the adult learner.
I am a freelance writer and adjunct professor; I was a trial attorney until 2010. I have a BA and an MA in social sciences and each course of study was writing intensive. I have a JD from Columbia Law School. I have an LLM in biotechnology and genomics (thesis outstanding). My academic training and current teaching roles have given me expertise in AP, MLA, Chicago, APA, and other style guides. I have written a weekly column in a local online magazine, I write and manage several large business blogs, and I have managed and produced social media for several organizations. I have demonstrated editorial judgement and a superior command of the English language. I have years of teaching experience with adults and children. I have experience providing voice talent, especially for technical businesses (please see sample below). Finally, I have years of experience with training and course development. I am based in Phoenix, Arizona.
