Professional Experience

An educational freelancer, I've written everything from teacher coaching guides to 3rd Grade English Language Arts assessments. Over the past 11 years, I have also completed the following editing projects: B2B texts for Hoover's Online, Pre-K-8th Grade Math student/teacher editions, English Language Arts assessment items Grades 3-10, and middle-school nonfiction books. Currently, I craft eBay auction descriptions, hawking designer and vintage clothing for fair prices in a tough economy. I also work on polishing my four children's picture books, which I'm determined to get published someday soon.
