Professional/Personal Overview
  Writing has always come naturally to me, and I love working with others to create the content they’re looking for. After receiving my Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing at Binghamton University, I went on to integrate the skills I learned into my career. I took online classes through Mediabistro where I received a Copy Editing Certificate, and I use my obsession with proper grammar and strong handle on the English language to improve my writing further. I’ve been published across multiple blogs and have written copy for a diverse array of companies. I feel comfortable writing about virtually any topic and am confident in my strong, distinct voice.
