I am a writer and editor with a keen eye for detail and a passion for helping others communicate their ideas. I have extensive experience with academic writing and research, technical writing, copywriting, document formatting, newsletter writing, resume crafting, and website editing. In addition to these areas of expertise, I have taught First-Year Writing at NC State University and enjoy helping others improve their writing. If you are looking for someone to help you communicate complex ideas in a clear, digestible way, I can help!
I currently work in the Graduate School at NC State University in a few roles: I review the formatting of all PhD and Master's students' dissertations and theses, write marketing copy for graduate programs' email campaigns, and edit a variety of technical documents (handbooks, instruction manuals, etc). Because of my position at NC State, I cannot accept any freelance work for current NC State graduate students that involves format editing, but I am willing to help with content writing.
I frequently engage with non-native English speakers and have experience helping them communicate their thoughts in English. For example, I have helped a Ukrainian PhD candidate write their statement of purpose and aided Chinese students with their resumes and cover letters.
Recently, I have written a self-published magazine featuring interviews with local musicians, worked with a local photographer to write a mission statement for their website, and helped write resume and cover letters. I am flexible and willing to help with any writing job.
