Education

Skills

Microsoft Office Suite
Everyone should be pretty proficient at this, in my opinion.
Writing and copy editing
Can't help it: I love words. They are my best tools. Wish everyone felt this way.  
Typing
The last time my typing skills were tested I think I came in somewhere between 65 and 70 words per minute. Thanks, Wichita Eagle, for making me learn how to interview fast-talking, long-winded people by phone!
