nDash Writer Profile for Kelly Gurnett

Kelly Gurnett


Freelance Writer, Editor & Blogger

About Me

I've done it all. Created a freelance business from scratch that enabled me to quit the 9-to-5, then inspire others who long to do the same? Check. Worked as a staff writer for everything from lifestyle blogs to personal finance blogs? Check. Served as Editor-in-Chief of multiple-contributor sites? Check. Ghostwritten for high-profile bloggers, business leaders and more? Check. Racked up 12+ years as an administrative whiz for a busy law firm, where I started as a temporary office clerk answering phones and eventually climbed the corporate ladder to paralegal managing a multi-million-dollar estate? Check. In other words, I Get Things Done. No task is too small and no goal too big; I bring passion, determination and a ridiculously can-do spirit to whatever I set my mind to. I love working with words and equally passionate people, bringing order to chaos, and creating wham-bam impact that gets results. If you're the same, let's talk.
