About Me

Am I a bit new to the world of freelancing? Compared to some, yes. However, I am no less professional, motivated, or 'life' experienced and bring all of this to the table.

 I have been writing content for three years now, the vast majority for Gannet and Grateful Ventures. Writing for them was how I got my feet wet and found what I hope to be my next career. I wrote a large variety of content ranging from articles on food to holidays to marriage communication techniques to how to support veterans on the 4th of July. I have also ghost-written blog posts for a catering service, tattoo artist, and ski and snowboard fanatic, along with newsletters for private schools. 

I graduated first with a bachelor's in Political Science and an associate's in Journalism, followed by a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and finishing with a master's in Curriculum and Instruction. 

I was an elementary school teacher for 17 years and will always think of myself as an educator. I bring my passion for teaching to my writing in that I strive to inspire, educate, entertain, and keep them coming back for more. 

In this, my 'second act', along with writing, I also studied for and am now a certified personal trainer. Fitness and healthy living have long been a passion of mine and I hope to inspire others to live their best life. 

Along with the writing samples I've included in my profile, my portfolio can be found at https://www.clippings.me/users/lblevins .

I am always eager to discuss projects and get the details to ensure quality content.
