Profile Summary

Writing for fishbat, I have been featured on several blog sites including Social Media Today, Soshable.com and Business 2 Community. Having blogs featured on these sites has brought maximum exposure for fishbat and assisted in their SEO campaign. My creative writing skills have given me the flexibility to cover a broad range of topics from social media to entertainment.

As Chief Content Editor, I was charged with the responsibility of Blogger Outreach to gain maximum exposure for client product awareness. I managed a team of interns performed fishbat’s Blogger Outreach strategy as well as build professional relationships with blog editors.

Editing for fishbat has helped me perform independently multiple research projects and meet difficult deadlines. While maintaining quality control on the content released by fishbat in the form of blogs, press releases and website content, I was charged with the responsibility of tracking productivity among interns. My editing responsibilities have challenged my organizational skills as well as put me into a position of leadership among interns responsible for producing content.

As a former United States Marine and an honors’ student, I am confident that my attention to detail – combined with my writing and research skills – have equipped me with the ability to achieve success in any work environment.
