Insperity is a human resources company that offers a variety of HR and business solutions designed to help improve each client's business performance. As a Recruiting Representative working alongside a team of Recruiting Specialists, I contacted job seekers and attempted to match them with the requirements and responsibilities for a given position.

Most recently I worked with the Selected Services team, writing engaging ads intended for internet publication on major job sites such as CareerBuilder, Monster, and Dice. I was also responsible for 50% of the blog content from my team.

I have been writing independently since I was in elementary school, and have only within the last 5 years used that skill and passion as part of my job.    At a previous position I utilized this skill in the creation of marketing literature for an up-and-coming gourmet candy company.  I also wrote ads for Insperity clients for use on job sites such as CareerBuilder,, Craigslist, and Monster (to name only a few!) and was responsible for generating 50% of the blog content from my team.   I am in process of writing a stage play, an excerpt from which I presented at University of St. Thomas Undergraduate Research Day in Spring 2011.   Publications Assisian Sky (pg5) - Spring 2009 - Univ. of Dallas Forum Romanum - Nurses Week 2012 - 05/10/12 - InsperityCareers Facebook Note - How To Get A Job When a Royal Princess - 05/10/12- Undercover Recruiter - - Houston blogger -


"The page is still. The page waits for you to calm down. The page holds that blurry thought while you squint at the edges, holds it until you know just how to laminate that event/emotion/entity with words and punctuation. The page can wait for hundreds of years to be read, so it’s not too much to ask that an author takes the time to write it right, instead of just right now." - Dana, RwV (emphasis mine)
