I have experience writing and editing for online and print media. I held an editorial position in one of the nation's forefront student operated newspapers. I interned at a large plastic bottle manufacturer giving me experience far beyond my educational background. I thrive in high pressure environments and enjoy the challenge of meeting deadlines and working as a dependable team player. My education and experience have prepared me to research, evaluate, edit and interview on a wide range of subjects.
