I am a teacher with nearly ten years of experience editing writing, who loves language. The marketing and publishing fields are places in which I have solid experiences and consider a natural home for my talents. Opportunities for creativity and expression are something I love to explore in myself and foster in others and provide the most rewarding experiences of my professional life.
