I have nearly 10 years of experience in writing and copy editing, particularly in a journalistic capacity. I have worked as a writer and copy editor for several news publications, including The Columbia Missourian, The Allegheny Front, The Maneater, The Pitt News and The Duquesne Lawyer. My background in journalism ensures that all projects are completed on deadline and with a high degree of accuracy.
I have worked as a librarian at several public libraries in a variety of capacities, including cataloging, reference, programming, marketing and fundraising.
I am a member of American Library Association, Editorial Freelancer Association, and American Society of Indexers.
