I take pride in a job well done, and I will work with you to ensure that a job furthers your goals, whatever they may be. Some people say that home is where the heart is; for me, home is wherever my laptop and Internet connection can be found. Although I'm based out of Louisiana (Southern girl, born and raised), I've lived in Las Vegas, Chicago, Arkansas, England, and Vietnam. I may not know where I'll be tomorrow, but I do know that wherever it is, I'll be working with the English language -- writing or teaching. Besides having a black belt in travel and years of experience in writing and teaching, I've also worked in sales and managed a yarn store. Knitting is a passion of mine, and my designs have been published in U.S. magazines. I regularly produce Web content for the Demand family of websites; write SEO for a popular entertainment site; provide freelance editing services; and teach ESL to private students via Skype. I provide information about the knitting world, including patterns and how to articles, on my website at knowledgeofyarn.com.

I offer services in English-French translation (5 years experience), French Proofreading and writing in French. I have a Master's Degree in French Literature and I am fluent in English. I have been published in both languages, mostly in French. Newspaper articles, web content and short stories are some of the things I produced.
