Professional Experience

A recent college grad with writing and fact checking experience for a national publication. I've written press releases, features, and drafted social media posts on topics from wheelchair mobility vehicles, to the green service industry, to the effects of blindness on self image, to college life. If you'd like to help a fresh grad break into the industry as she helps with your social, writing, or fact checking, you've come to the right place!
