Ashley Keltz

Ashley Keltz

Professional and dedicated editor, writer, transcriber, and more.

United States - Tests: 6

Greetings! My name is Ashley Keltz. I am currently attending the University of Illinois where I major in Psychology and am on the pre-med track. I became a freelancer on oDesk as a way to fund my college education and support myself financially. I am willing to work as much or as little as you may need. I am a hard worker; I work quickly and efficiently. Transcribing, writing, reading, editing, and proofreading are also some of my passions and talents. I have taken many writing classes throughout college which have taught me how to better write articles, blogs, reviews, E-books, and many other documents through my oDesk jobs. I am very experienced at working with a wide variety of software programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Published, and Access. I am fluent in English and Spanish. I have a passion for technology. I love managing social media accounts, small businesses, and such. I am available to work full-time and even over time. I am in desperate need of the funds to support myself financially and any job helps, no matter how high or low the pay. I am a very reliable client to work with, and I will not disappoint. Also, I am more than happy to learn any new skills that will help me complete my jobs better. I love learning. One can never learn enough in a lifetime! I greatly appreciate you taking the time to read through my overview. Thank you for your time and consideration. I hope to work with you in the future. Have a great day! Sincerely, Ashley Keltz P.S. Let me explain the reasoning behind a review a client posted on my page. Please disregard the comment below by a client who said I was a "horrible worker and tried to commit fraud". Go look at his page and you can see that a client besides myself had the same situation with the client, in which he claimed we were frauds and that he wanted a refund. This client's system failed and ended up closing the page that was open because it would not save my work and I could not go back and edit it. This resulted in the document being automatically submitted, which showed I did not make changed to the document. If the system would have let me edit, I would have made necessary corrections. Clients gave me great feedback. I have never attempted to commit fraud. NEVER EVER. This client needs to be removed from Upwork immediately, unfortunately I am the one who receives a bad review. Thank you for taking the time to read my side of the story. Please do not let that negative and FALSE review get in the way of hiring me. I won't ever disappoint a client.
