I have been writing for as long as I could pick up a pencil. Throughout high school, I had fantasies of being both an international spy and a writer. During my first attempt at college many, many years ago, I took every English class that I could fit into my schedule – literature, composition, and creative writing classes. I created my first blog sixteen years ago and even though I didn’t write consistently, I could never let it go completely.
In order to continue writing, I became a certified Technical Writer but have plans to pursue more creative outlets. To best support my tech writing, translation, and creative writing endeavors, I recently began the Editing Certification program through the UW Professional and Continuing Education. I chose this program specifically for it’s component of grammar review. You may notice, I like to throw commas all over the place!
Copyediting and overall editing of web content are my strengths.
