Experienced Writer and Editor
I strive for perfection in everything that I do. My goal is to not only exceed the expectations of clients and employers, but to surpass the high expectations I set for myself. Exceptional work, timeliness, dedication, and going the extra mile are just a few things that you should expect from me.
My dedication has allowed me to be an independent contractor and work remotely for the last ten years. I have been fortunate enough to work for a variety of wonderful clients through oDesk, Elance, and personal clients that I have met through years of networking.
Writing and editing are things that I love, and my commitment to my clients, as well as my love for the written word, have allowed me to build a career that I thoroughly enjoy. I have experience with all types of writing and editing, I am familiar with various writing styles including AP, and if something is new to me, I can pick it up in no time at all. My preferred topics are news/current events, fashion, technology, health and beauty, and lifestyle, although my web research skills allow me to write confidently on any topic.
I have experience with data entry, article writing, blog writing, buying guide writing, and web copy. I am proficient in Microsoft Office programs, particularly MS Word and Excel, and I type at a rate of 90 wpm. I have an eye for detail, and I can change my style of writing as needed.
For over one year, I have had the privilege of working as a project manager through Elance. During my tenure as a manager, I have overseen copy for thousands of websites written by a team that has consisted of anywhere between 25 to 120 writers. I have onboarded new talent, trained new writers, made myself available around the clock for my team, edited, provided regular feedback to each writer, and have made adjustments to meet performance standards.
I am always on the lookout for new projects, and I have become quite experienced at juggling multiple things at once. Don't be misled, though -- I devote my full attention to every single project, and I strive to go the extra mile for everything I do. Whether it's long-term or a one-shot gig, you can expect nothing less than the best when you work with me.
