I have an MBA from Johns Hopkins and a Masters in marketing from University of Phoenix. I love all things business from the entry and start up stages to taking an established business to the next level. Minor courses in English and writing helped hone my skills for creating stellar business plans and marketing materials, all of which were an asset when helping companies launch their business or introduce a new product. I love business, but I tired of the corporate rat race and now I write full time.
When I received my MBA, I knew there were parts of the traditional MBA that were lacking, and marketing is only a small part of what I had learned. To grow my consulting business, I enrolled in online classes to learn all I could about marketing one's business and taking it to the top. The outcome of dual Masters degrees has been remarkable.
Today, I provide consulting on the side, but much of my focus is helping students excel in their studies. I've always loved reading and writing so being an academic writer, to me, is a perk of something I already enjoy. Like having your cake and eating it too!
I love the craft of writing academic papers from the research stage to putting it together to formatting. I am a stickler for proper citation and formatting and believe that the best academic writers should be familiar (if not very experienced) in all types of academic citation formats.
One trait I process is the ability to tackle the same subject on many different levels, each with a unique voice. This is especially helpful as an academic writer as I can cover the same topics for different students, each with a different style, tone, and perspective.
In terms of the types of writing projects I take on, I literally work on most any and everything. However, my favorite areas of interest business, international studies, women's studies, literature, psychology, and sociology. I cover far more than those, but that gives prospective clients an idea of what I enjoy most.
As a writer with more than 20 years' experience, I understand the importance of communication and meeting deadlines. I am a native English-speaking writer. I can write in British English, but it's not my "favourite." I'm just kidding. I don't mind it either way. It's quite interesting to learn how the English language is spoken and spelled in different regions in the world.
Lastly, why do I enjoy being a freelance academic writer? I love seeing clients succeed in their studies. I have walked some difficult roads and have learned much the hard way throughout my academic and business careers. I want to share my knowledge and expertise with others, to help students exceed all expectations-whether they are one's personal expectations or the expectations of those watching you (parents, grandparents, educators, current or prospective employers).
How can I help you succeed?
