Amanda Johnson

Writer and Copyeditor

United States - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

Need a professional copyeditor or writer to assist with your project? I have a critical eye to assist in editing your work, but have an encouraging attitude. I pride myself in clear, respectful, and professional communication with customers and a high sense of integrity (no wasted time!), and am easy to work with. For the last five years, I worked for the Department of Veterans Affairs in medical claims development (which involved medical and military records research, writing, editing, and customer service) and as a Training Manager for a VA call center, and chose to leave my role as Training Manager to pursue my freelance career. I have experience in writing and research using medical and light legal terminology (received 40 hours of on-the-job training in medical terminology with VA), as well as writing and editing lesson plans and training materials as a Training Manager for national in-house use. I am confident in all styles of work needed (legal, creative, medical, business, etc.). I graduated Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee in 2010 with a Bachelor's of Business Administration with an additional English Writing Concentration. Currently, I am pursuing an accredited Professional Certification in Copyediting through the University of California San Diego Extension program. As one of those many millennials out there, I am an absolute nerd about digital and web content copyediting (I would love to copyedit your website or blog!). I can help you seamlessly merge professionalism with the informal tone of today's web content. My rates are currently priced to assist in building my portfolio and reputation on Upwork-but that won't last long!
