Ashford University 2009-2013 Major: History 4.0 G.P.A. Overall G.P.A: 3.85 Writing has always been my passion, even since childhood. As a student, I have become prolific in writing research papers from two to ten pages in length. My grammar is exceptional and my attention to the details of proper punctuation, vocabulary, and sentence structure are excellent. I am familiar with APA 6th edition research writing style. Proofreading is something that is actually fun for me, and I have utilized my excellent command of the English language to help friends and family to write research papers. I have, to this date, never received a grade lower than "A" for any of my personal research papers, or those of my friends and family.

My name is Christina. I have been in the customer service and medical industry for 23 years. I thoroughly enjoy working with customers over the phone and via the internet. I have 4 years of scheduling and office management. I have mastered Generations Software and am very versed in other programs as well. I have pretty fast typing and I always know when I have made an error and go and fix it. I am a stickler for that sort of thing. I have excellent spelling and am often contacted from family and friends in other states on the correct spelling of words. I know it sounds strange, but it's true.
