    Writer and Editor

    United States - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

    I obtained my bachelor's degree in Communications from Marquette University in 2006 with a minor in English Intensive Writing, but also took advertising and marketing courses as part of my curriculum. For the last 2 and half years, I worked as a marketing editor/writer for Nationwide Relocation Services, a moving company based in Margate. The company served as a headquarters for 8 other moving companies that operated out of the same building. There I wrote SEO (search engine optimization) content for multiple websites (,,,, and to market each company and their services, which included providing local and long distance moves for clients. I made sure that the content was grammatically correct, concise and engaging enough so that if someone needed moving help, they would choose us to help them move. I started out as a writer, and eventually worked my way up to editor, where I was responsible for instructing new writers on the format of SEO-style writing. At one point I managed up to 12 writers and proofread all of the content they wrote in addition to my own, so taking charge of any atmosphere is something I not only am not afraid of, it's something I relish.

    Alyssa Reyes

    Creative Writer and Editor

    United States - Portfolio: 1

    My name is Alyssa Reyes. Currently, I attend Ivy Tech Community College pursuing a degree in General Studies. I am a very opinionated, passive, and indecisive woman with a creative streak that runs wild. I've been blogging privately for about seven years now. I typically write everything from short stories, personal experiences, and reviews. I have always had a passion for writing however, I lack the experience to pursue a lucrative career using it. I thoroughly enjoy reading, rewriting, writing, and editing. I'm hoping that soon I can share it with more than just my family, who in fact, are my one and only supporters.
