Quick Facts

Content Creation

I have developed SEO-rich content for websites, landing pages, and blogs.

BA, English
Arizona State University
While many assume that my degree involved diagramming sentences and understanding the difference between a gerund and and article, my time was spent sharpening my critical-thinking skills through literary analysis.
I also have completed financial planning, financial analysis, and business administration graduate courses at the Unviersity of Phoenix and the College for Financial Planning.


My career path has taken many turns. From a Sears sporting goods sales girl to a proxy voting analyst with layovers in financial proofreading, licensed financial services, freelance writing, and graduate course development. All of these experiences have taught me exactly where I excel and where my interests are placed.
The next chapter in professional life will draw upon the skills and knowledge from these prior work experiences to inform and further my freelance writing career.
I look forward to using these skills and experiences for the benefit of a well-respected company with values we both share. 
When I am not writing and researching, you can find me watching Forex and stock charts, researching many areas of interest,  watching a documentary or perfecting my Olympic lifting skills.
