    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 3

    A little about me I have a B.S. in Psychology and I am currently earning my Masters in the same field. I have an educational background in, Business management, accounting and teaching. I speak and write in perfect English. Between writing for Odesk (which is now Upwork) and building websites for clients I have earned a great deal of experience in both. I design Wordpress sites, I use template builders to make sure that YOU the client can go in and edit anything you want long after I am gone. This makes for quick, effective and responsive websites that do not cost you an arm and leg. Need content? Not a problem, I started off as a writer and find it is why I love building websites so much. Need SEO work done? Who better to do it than a writer and web site designer? I own a private business and this is one of our staples. Please feel free to contact me for more information. I work from home, this is my job. I am available 15 plus hours a day. (have to sleep sometime!)
