Freelance Writing

Want engaging, research-supported, and clearly explained articles to draw your audience into your website? Words, research, and stories have long been my passion. I earned my BA in English from Valparaiso University and my MA from the University of Dayton, both with summa cum laude honors. While I left behind a career in academia to pursue freelance writing and run coaching, I still uphold the highest standards when it comes to my writing and research, and I will do the same for you.

You can contact me for freelance work at [email protected].
