About Me

I have worked as a freelance writer for over four years, and during that time, I have gained knowledge and implemented the current AP style guidelines and have acquired experience in editing and proofreading. As a ghostwriter, I have written for many websites, progressing to more advanced writing levels, higher pay scales, and on one website, secured a place on 22 specialized writing teams that dealt with marketing, product descriptions, and research. I have become experienced at writing research articles, SEO articles, blogs, and copywriting. For almost a year, I was a writer, proofreader, and editor for a high traffic content website.


I had gained knowledge about the law, economics, natural and social sciences when I attended North Seattle Community College from 1992 to 1995. I had planned to transfer to the University of Washington to earn a Bachelor of Science and then go on to law school. At NSCC, I started my double majors in Economics and Geology and minored in Psychology, earning an Associate of Science. I had also taken a year of pre-law courses in preparation for law school. Before I could transfer to the University, I went back to my hometown because of a family emergency, which prevented me from finishing my education in Seattle.


My specialty areas include research and writing about natural sciences (earth, environmental, microbiology, wildlife), social sciences (psychology, law), pets (birds, horses, cats, dogs), medicine/healthcare (alternative medicine, plastic surgery, illnesses, diseases, pharmaceuticals), entertainment (movies, music, TV, books), and beauty.(makeup, fashion, hair care).

Experience

Freelance Writer

I am a three-star writer at this website and have progressed to have a "love list", which means I am the preferred writer for a few clients, and I had acquired these clients by participating in the casting calls.

Company: Writer Access

I worked there from 6/2017 until now

Freelance Writer

I have worked as a ghostwriter there and achieved third level. It's an open order format, but I wanted more consistency in how often the clients would read and buy the articles that I had submitted. I hadn't written there much in the last year.

Company: Blogmutt

I worked there from 6/2017 until 5/2019

Writer/Proofreader/Editor

I had taken their writing and editing tests and passed them. I had been assigned several writing and editing jobs, but I did secure a writing job that lasted for several months, which gave me a good, steady income.

Company: Copy Press

I worked there from 10/2017 until 7/2018

Freelance Writer

I have worked as a ghostwriter for TextBroker longer than any other website and I obtained most of my writing experience there. This website also has an open order format. I progressed to the four-star level and became a member of 22 specialized writing teams. I have done several direct orders for clients, earning .05/word.

Company: TextBroker

I worked there from 8/2015 until now

Freelance Writer

As a freelance writer, I was hired to work on a micro-tasking project for Crowd Content which involved writing 12 to 20-word snippets for Public Records on government or municipal websites, describing the website. That lasted for two months. That was a fun project.

Company: Crowd Content

I worked there from 10/2017 until 12/2017

Freelance Writer

This is the website where I got my start as a freelance ghostwriter. This website has an open order format, so I was able to quickly progress to the "expert writer" level.

Company: Hire Writers

I worked there from 5/2015 until 12/2018

Technical Services Assistant - Cataloger

I was trained as a cataloger and worked for my county's library system for over five years. My duties included copy cataloging, importing bibliographic records from the OCLC bibliographic database to the county's library system database. I also maintained library system materials in the system database by editing, adding and deleting MARC bibliographic records. It was while I was working for the library system that I began thinking about becoming a freelance writer, so I became one.

Company: Yakima Valley Libraries

I worked there from 10/2009 until 5/2015
