    Over the past 15 years I have developed a wide range of skills working as an independent contractor. I love to learn and because of that there are multiple jobs that I enjoy and excel at. Although I enjoy all of my jobs, I am most passionate about writing. I am fortunate to have a lot of experience in many areas, such as: Writing: SEO Content, Copy writer, Creative (bachelor's degree in Journalism), Mac Specialist, IT (tech support for AOL), Paralegal (legal asst. degree), Private Investigation (licensed), Researcher, Data Entry, Writing for ChaCha and Ask.com, Accounts Payable and Receivable, General Automotive Knowledge (1 year auto mechanics), and more. However, whatever it is that I am tasked to do I give my all. It is very important to me that I do the job to my employer's expectations; it makes them feel good which makes me feel good.
