As a freelance worker, I have written hundreds of articles, press releases, advertisements, and web content pieces for more than 150 clients, including Groupon and StudyMode.
I graduated magna cum laude and with Departmental Honors from the University of Toledo in Ohio. There, I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in English language and literature, with a concentration in writing, as well as a minor in international business and a minor in Spanish.
Sharp, lively writing is part of my characteristic style, reflecting my interest in bringing fresh ideas to promote entrepreneurial clients, services, and products.
