I'm Kate Piontek. My writing skills span many platforms as I have education, training, and work experience in social media marketing, blog writing, article writing, creative, and business writing among others. I currently maintain a full time position at a painting and remodeling company as a project assistant and marketing coordinator, but am looking to transition in order to focus on marketing, writing, and editing.
