Many clients over the last few years have come to depend on my creativity and improvisation skills to come up with great content for their websites and projects. My most recent work revolves blog posts and SEO writing on many different topics.
My training as a Legal Assistant has also carried over into my freelance work. I have a sharp eye for research and editing material. They always say a fresh set of eyes can make a difference on anything!
Since I am a Social Media Nerd, I recently expanded my freelance practice into Social Media Management. Looking at Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIN to further yourself or your ideas on? Drop me a line.
While I love to write on pretty much anything, some of my favourite topics are Music, Writing, self-help motivation, Canadian Travel, Las Vegas Travel and Food and Drink.
