I am a writer, editor and communications consultant living in Marshfield, Wisconsin, and I am hoping that you might consider contracting with me for writing/editing services. I am looking for projects that I can work on from home.
I can write and edit technical documents, reports, research articles and grant proposals. I also have experience writing and editing newsletters and producing content for websites, blogs, and social media sites.
I have a BA in English (composition, rhetoric and applied writing) from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and I am currently working toward a masterâs degree in health communications from Chapman University.
