I provide high quality, professional writing and editing services to a wide range of clients. After receiving my bachelor of arts from allegheny college, I began to work as a freelance writer for a number of in-print & online publications, alongside editing for everyone from high school students to seasoned authors. While i am trained as a poet, my writing experience is not limited to creative work. i have written grant proposals, science articles, political think pieces, etc. My editing services go beyond surface level error correction & get to the heart of your writing, making sure overall content is strong & coherent. In addition to writing & editing, I provide resume consultations for individuals looking to enter the workforce.
