    NOTE: I only accept hourly jobs unless I am the one applying. Please do not offer me fixed rate jobs. I no longer accept fixed rate. You will be wasting your time and mine if you offer me a fixed rate job. In order for me to accept a fixed rate job, I have to be the one who applied; offered fixed rate jobs will be ignored unless I actively applied. My objective is to use my skills in marketing and criminal justice to help people. I have experience in email marketing, and I am a fast learner. On the criminal justice side, I have a Bachelor's degree in criminal justice. This degree can be put to work for you and your company in many ways. I can do many things with my marketing and criminal justice experience; just let me know what you need.

On the customer service side of things, I have over thirteen years of customer service experience, and I pride myself in providing the best customer service that I possibly can. I can handle irritable and angry customers well, as well as deal with questions and concerns that customers have. I have much experience writing BMR articles, and can write them fairly quickly. I have written literally thousands of them, and have gotten quite good at it. Though BMR is now out of business, the SEO experience I gained from writing these articles is still very useful. At this time, I am looking for a full time job. Preferably, this job will involve writing. Contact me if you think my skills can help you.
