I have over fourteen years of experience writing and editing in both the academic and business world. During that time, I also spent six years privately teaching English, honing my communication skills to the utmost. As such, I am especially adept at clarifying and strengthening the written word to best suit the appropriate audience.

A member of the Editorial Freelancers Association, projects I have worked on include academic papers, blogs, social media, short stories, product copy, corporate websites, corporate biographies, brochures, proposals, marketing material, and a variety of legal documents.

Since graduating with my MA in English, I started blogging at The Cat Lady Sings, and I have been featured on The Huffington Post and BlogHer. Additionally, I am a Contributing Editor at Yeah Write and a regular contributor to Have Heart Magazine. A Los Angeles native, I enjoy reading, writing fiction and poetry, traveling, painting, playing the piano, and hiking.
