Experience (you can see my resume here)

Resume Writer

I write resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles at Let's Eat, Grandma, named "The Best Resume Writing Services of 2022" by The Balance Careers. LEG's mission is "to arm job seekers with the tools, confidence, and hope needed to advance in their careers" and I am excited to put my pen to work helping others find their dream jobs.

Proofreader/Editorial Reviewer

I recently finished a project proofreading K-5 math curriculum for Nearpod, an instructional platform for teachers which provides interactive, online lessons across a variety of subject areas. My role was to compare final lesson plans to the scripts from which they were generated and identify errors in grammar, spelling, syntax, consistency, layout, and overall readiness for publication.

Associate Editor

I typeset and proofread religious academic research manuscripts and articles for journal and book publication at the Global Center for Religious Research.

Ghostwriter

By definition, a ghostwriter is uncredited for their work and a certain level of discretion is expected. I've written dozens of blog posts across multiple industries and I was the primary writer-blogger for client Garden of Esther, posting nearly 200 times under her name from January 2019 through June of 2020.

Writer

I wrote all the content on the websites I designed from the ground up, which you can also access through my Portfolio page. I've also written content for multiple newsletters, brochures, advertorials, and flyers.

I have been published in Home Education Magazine, and although they have since gone out of business, you can read my work for them on my Writing page.

Editor

In addition to editing all of the above, I've also edited for most of my clients, from revising written material they created already had to reviewing presentation slides to advising on new business cards.

I've worked with high school students on their college application essays, helping them tell their stories, in their own voices, while making sure their I's were dotted and their T's were crossed.

I've compiled and edited playbills for community theatres, polishing bios and managing layout challenges.

Designer

I've designed websites, flyers, brochures, and playbills.

Skills

Proficient with Wix and Canva; familiar with Publisher, Mailchimp, and SEO writing.

Judge

I've been a judge for the Independent Publishers of New England (IPNE) annual book awards for works published in 2020 and 2021.

Training

In November 2021, I completed a 50-hour module in copyediting and proofreading at Proofreading Academy (now Knowadays).
