Experience

I have been creating original content for the last two years, including short stories, blogs, and marketing pieces for small businesses.  I have developed a keen eye towards reader impact, consistent grammar and style, design layout and development.  My promotional work can be found in Lakefront Living and South Bend Living.  I also review books on my blog The Library Key.

I have also edited, proofread, or otherwise contributed to various literary magazines, including Split Lip Magazine, Anomaly Literary Journal, and Booth: A JournalIn addition, I have worked with Michigan-based interior designer Ginger Hollenbeck on her up-and-coming blog, For the Love of Wine and Design.

In 2017, I had the privilege of editing a story for Split Lip called “Poisoned Apple,” by Katie Welch, which won the Longform Fiction Pick of the Week on December 15th, 2017.

For three years, I have also taught English composition, where I have honed my skills as a writer, editor, and teacher.  Some classes I have taught or assisted with include the following:
