    Good morning/afternoon/evening, Upwork clients! I have had the pleasure of being on Upwork since 2014. I am a full-time freelancer with 19 years of journalism and editing experience, 16 years of digital editing experience, six years in mid-level management roles, 22 years of administrative experience, and 25 years of social media experience. I've also completed approximately 247 interviews with experts in mental health, veganism and vegetarianism, environmentalism, hybrid cars, business startups, attorney advice, pet health, product reviews, and tech-centric dating app projects. Before and during my journalism and publishing jobs, I completed seasonal work for a credit union. Tasks included filing, faxing, scanning, mail preparation, transcribing meeting minutes and editing their newsletter. I'd probably still be popping in if the local credit union hadn't merged with a bigger credit union. That clerical experience has been extremely helpful for project management and in leadership roles. Speaking of that, my volunteer leadership projects included being a two-year condo board president and treasurer, a five-time Toastmasters officer, and a yearlong host of a storytelling club. From part-time freelancer to full-time freelancer, I am grateful for any invite I receive. However, transparency is the best way to find suitable (and long-term) clients. These HOURLY-ONLY jobs are the kinds of projects that make me leap to my laptop to apply: * Financial literacy and financial news copy (editing and writing) * Legal copy (editing and writing) * Real estate copy (editing and writing) * K-12 literature and books (LOVE African- and African-American history books) * Adult-education books and tech tutorials (editing finance/investing and real estate books are my favorites) * National and world news, political news (editing, fact-checking, writing) * Dog-related content of any kind (editing and writing) * Healthy eating and nutrition topics that focus on veganism and vegetarianism (editing and writing) * Administrative and transcription jobs (similar to the credit union work mentioned above) Ideal Client: My CliftonStrengths results are Achiever, Command, Executor and Influencer, meaning I excel in leadership positions with minimal supervision. I thrive in virtual work environments with clients who communicate well, give constructive feedback, are respectful of a work-life balance and pay in a timely manner. My long-term clients are quite fond of Upwork Messenger, Slack, Asana, Loom and/or email as a primary way to connect. Does that describe you? I'd love to hear from you then.

    Hello and welcome to my profile! I am a freelance writer and editor, with most of my experience being in website copy, magazine articles, short stories, books, news stories, in-store marketing and product copy. I have worked at advertising agencies for over five years as both a copywriter and editor, with a lot of my time dedicated to writing and editing product copy for Target, but I'm so thrilled to have the opportunity to grow my own business. I have worked with AP style and Chicago style most extensively, but I have also created and followed specific brand voice guidelines for each client that I've worked with. In my free time, I love to go to movies, read books, write for my own personal projects (not surprising for a writer and editor I suppose), watch reality shows and explore different coffee shops around town. I'm so glad that you found my profile, and I'm excited to be able to help you take on your projects with confidence!

    I believe the editor’s primary duties are to help the writer earn the reader’s trust--to alert the writer to things that may erode the reader’s sense of the writer’s authority, including errors and anything that is unclear, hard to understand, or unintentionally illogical--while being faithful to the writer’s intentions and the message he or she wishes to convey. About me: Over the last 15 years, I’ve been a magazine copy editor, associate editor of an academic medical ethics journal, an in-house editor at Paramount, and a freelance editor for companies like Callisto and Buzzfeed. I'm proficient in Chicago style and savvy about grammar, syntax, and usage. I am proficient in tracking changes in MS Word and Google Docs. I have a BA in English from the University of Chicago and a manuscript editing certificate from the University of Chicago’s Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies.
