    The devil's in the details, which is why I focus on the details.

I earned my Master of Arts in Publishing in Rosemont College in 2014.

    Jordan Pennington

    Writing, Editing, Social Media Marketing

    United States - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 6

    Hi, I'm Jordan Pennington, and thanks for checking out my profile. I'm currently an editor and author for Alot Health (health.alot.com), a health and wellness site owned by Inuvo Inc. that I've been working for since July 2014. Additionally, I founded and continue to manage the Tumblr presence for Alot Health (alothealth.tumblr.com). During an average week, I frequently find myself working as a content and copy editor, a social media marketer, a current events sleuth, and a user experience designer--but thankfully not all at once! Before my current position I was a full-time freelance writer specializing in website content, blog posts, and ad copy. I worked with a number of clients here on Upwork (formerly oDesk), and I'm proud to say that my work history speaks for itself. While the majority of my time these days is devoted to Alot Health, I'm still very interested in taking on side projects that pique my interest. If you have work that you think I'd be a good fit for based on what you've seen here, don't hesitate to drop me a line!
