I am a recent graduate with B.S. in Professional Writing May 16, 2014 and am ready to use the skills I learned to help clients achieve the best quality of work possible. I have learned the skills necessary to complete large writing, editing, and design projects through client-based projects in my coursework. One of the projects completed involved completing a full editing cycle on an article written by the head of the Computer Science Department at Missouri State University being submitted to a peer reviewed journal titled The Fibonacci Quarterly. This project required me to learn how to work with LaTex software to complete the edits in the document. I have also created a quick reference guide for the Michaels Arts and Crafts store front end operations. When I left my position there to finish my final semester of college it was being put up for review to be used company wide.
