    Writer, Editor, and Experienced In Customer Sales and Service

    United States - Tests: 5

    I specialize in both writing and editing, but in the past six months I have also been doing a small amount of tutoring for a couple clients. My background has largely been in Sales and Marketing as I was certified in 2008 in that field through college based courses. In the past few years and especially the last few months I have branched out more into this field that I love. I can help you on anything from blogging to resumes. I am personally working on my first eBook that I look to launch before the end of the year as I have put it on the side to focus more solely on my clients needs. My number one goal is to give my clients A+ work on all pieces completed, and gain a very good working relationship with them in the future. If there is ever any issues please contact me first and foremost so we can resolve it and still meet deadlines. I look forward to working with you. Nicolle
