About Me

Up until now, my main professional role has been that of a student. I majored in creative writing and love writing and editing work, but in reality my passion is more broad.

I love to solve problems. Problems like how to make large-impact advertisements for a small sorority on a budget. Problems like how to help a friend get his grades up. Problems like how to make a customer smile when they've been waiting in line for a while due to inefficient systems and a rush. Problems like how to install printer software on a computer, and change the ink, and fix a paper jam. Networking and communication problems. Less than helpful administration problems.

In a few years I plan to continue my education, but right now I'm looking to further my professional experience. If you have problems that need fixed, I'm the right employee for you.

Specialties: Writing, editing, proofreading, tutoring, troubleshooting, customer service, data entry, administrative work, event planning, organization, leadership, integrity.
