I possess a creative spirit and a curious mind. My experience includes professional writing and editing for a Chicago magazine publisher. I have worked as a tech writer for PPG Industries and Hewlett-Packard compiling operation procedure manuals and editing contracts for the legal department. Creatively, I worked as a production editor on two trade magazines and one consumer publication and designed presentations for tradeshows and marketing materials for Labtec Enterprises including catalogs, sell sheets, brochures, press releases, graphics and newsletters. Recently, I worked on an editing team on a book written by a holistic medical practitioner. For the past five years, I excelled as a high school English and broadcast journalism teacher. I have maintained a website and blog for special needs children and their parents. I have also worked as a researcher for a physician preparing new parent information packets for parents of special needs children. Currently, I am seeking remote contract work or telecommute job in the Chicago area. I deliver a plethora of experience and talent and am an expert at multi-tasking and meeting deadlines. My educational background consists of a B.A.degree from Eastern Illinois University with English/Journalism majors and minors in psychology and professional writing; and a M.A.degree from Olivet Nazarene University in 2006. Thank you for your time. I look forward to working with you.
