    While a picture may be worth a thousands words, just a few words can paint a whole glorious picture. My copious inner fires dance each opportunity I get to exploit my fervent passion for words. Dubbed as a "grammar nazi" since my teen years, I've been known to mark up even published works. With 8 years in marketing and communications, copywriting, editing, and proofing are at the top of my list in favorite skills. I've also been known to dabble in technical writing. Furthermore, my bounteous affection for Art keeps things fresh and balanced, as I live for the creative process. I've been blessed with more than 7 years of graphic design experience, to include logos, business cards, brochures, restaurant menus, websites and more. Have Wordpress needs? My technical side loves customizing Wordpress themes. I've even been known to create themes from scratch, when none of the available themes fit the client's needs. I can also integrate Wordpress with a variety of apps through API. I welcome a variety of assignments, whether copywriting/editing, graphic/web design, Wordpress development, Infusionsoft administration and more. Please don't hesitate to submit inquiry for any needed clarity! Your Success is My Passion!
