About Me

I graduated from Indiana University Southeast in 2014 with a bachelor's degree in English after initially working toward a Biology degree. After earning my degree, I immediately entered the freelance content writing sphere and built my professional portfolio based on a natural curiosity and willingness to research and write about any topic. 

However, I especially enjoy writing about small business marketing, home repair and renovation, pets and animals (I have personal and professional experience with dogs and horses), gardening and landscaping, and fiber arts. I'm a regular contributing writer to sites like Bizfluent, SFGate and Hunker. 

In addition to writing hundreds of articles since 2014, I've also had the opportunity to work in other roles, including content strategy, editing and proofreading. I also work part-time as an SEO project manager, handling every aspect of an SEO campaign from start to finish. Writing with SEO in mind is second nature, and I try to include title keywords in H2s and the introduction whenever possible, even when not strictly requested. 

Finally, I take deadlines very seriously. I've been known to stay up past midnight to meet a deadline rather than send that dreaded "It'll be a little late ..." email. Having been on the hiring side of content writing, I know how difficult it can be to find a quality writer who consistently submits work. You can count on me to communicate if there's a problem and to submit my work when it's expected -- or well before then!

I am currently looking to replace some of my lower-paying clients with higher-paying clients, so I'm most likely to accept assignments that fall into the $0.10+ range. However, I'm interested in filling out my portfolio with pieces pertaining to certain industries, including the automotive industry, and will write for such industries at a discounted rate.
