Professional Experience

I am an experienced non-profit professional with 11+ years of experience writing proposals, corporate correspondence and many other forms of copy. In addition, I have a passion for creative writing. I am passionate about food, music (especially live music) and travel. I have writing examples from two blogs, and am just beginning a non-fiction book. I love to write and would like to add more freelance work to my resume and portfolio. I have experience with concert reviews, recipe editing and much more, including cover letters and resume writing. Please feel welcome to contact me with any ideas or questions you have - I look forward to hearing from you!
