IMG_2218_2I am a freelance writer and have spent the last three years contributing to national magazines and publications. I write on diverse subjects such as fitness, religion, decorating, personal finance, and other lifestyle topics.

Most recently I was a part of the editorial team for an internationally distributed food magazine. I gained experience creating original web content for blog posts and recipe archives, pitching and researching articles, drafting and executing content-based newsletters and writing for the print publication.

For two years I was the Assistant Editor for an international contemporary poetry magazine that received an eclectic array of submissions. Along with the editor, I curated rich, engaging content as well as helped design the layout and art for the magazine.

My recent graduate-level coursework has equipped me with excellent writing and communication skills. I edit for grammar and style and also help the writer create meaningful and concise content. I am open to working with professionals, students, and organizations for various needs.

Education:

  • Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education and Minor in English from Kansas State University
