Shortly after obtaining a degree in journalism from Michigan State University in 2000, I became a mom. My three children have kept me very busy and even happier since! Now my youngest is ready to start school, and I'm ready to begin my writing career. I'm hoping for the chance to become the journalist I've always envisioned myself to be ... Any subject thrown my way would be a welcomed project. Since I have no portfolio to speak of, I realize I will have to prove myself. Just a chance to employ my writing skills would be a blessing. I do have some practical experience under my belt. Most recently, working for an advertising and marketing firm where I wrote press releases and other advertising copy for several of the firm's clients. Of course, the field of journalism is where I long to be. This is where I could combine my innate ability to interview, with my knack for organizing information into a readable and concise article. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to any opportunity to write.
