MY QUALIFICATIONS

WHAT MAKES ME UNIQUE?

 

PLEASE,

LET ME TELL YOU...

 

THEN LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE! 

 

SHARING MY PASSION WITH OTHERS
 
 

I'VE ALWAYS HAD A PASSION FOR WRITING. I STARTED STORYTELLING AS A CHILD, MAKING UP PLAYS AND SKITS FOR MY FAMILY, AND BEGAN JOURNALING AS SOON AS I LEARNED TO READ AND WRITE. 

EVER SINCE, MY LOVE FOR LANGUAGE HAS FLOURISHED.

 

LET ME TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF...

 

AFTER A CUMULATIVE 15 YEARS IN UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES, DURING MY LAST SEMESTER AT CAL STATE FULLERTON, I EARNED THE 2007 STUDENT AWARD FOR PROFESSIONAL PROMISE AND GRADUATED CUM LAUDE. AT THE TIME, I WAS ALSO WORKING OUTSIDE THE HOME, RAISING A CHILD AND TRYING TO MAINTAIN A SOMEWHAT "NORMAL" LIFE.

 

I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO STRUGGLE AND SACRIFICE TO ACCOMPLISH CHALLENGING GOALS.

 

AND, HOW GOOD IT FEELS TO ACHIEVE THEM!  

 

AFTER GRADUATION (AND THE BIRTH OF MY SECOND CHILD), I WORKED FOR THE ONLINE NEWS MAGAZINE EXAMINER.COM, WHERE I WROTE ARTICLES ABOUT THINGS FOR PARENTS TO DO IN AND AROUND ORANGE COUNTY. ADDITIONALLY, I STARTED A BLOG, THE PERFECT SPACE TO WRITE ABOUT MY OBSERVATIONS ON LIFE.

I DECIDED TO RETURN TO SCHOOL TO EARN A MASTERS IN FINE ARTS DEGREE IN CREATIVE WRITING; MY TRUE PASSION. DURING MY TIME AT CHAPMAN UNIVERSITY, BESIDES ENDLESS HOURS OF READING AND WRITING, I VOLUNTEERED TO TEACH HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FOR A WRITING WORKSHOP. WE FOCUSED ON PERSONAL STATEMENT ESSAY STRUCTURE, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, WE GOT KIDS WRITING. THAT EXPERIENCE LEFT A LASTING IMPACT ON MY LIFE AND INSPIRED ME TO CONTINUE TEACHING. 

 

MY FINAL SEMESTER OF GRADUATE SCHOOL, I WORKED WITH ADULTS AT THE RECOVERY EDUCATION INSTITUTE. WE FOCUSED ON PROFESSIONAL WRITING PERTAINING TO RESUME BUILDING, COVER LETTERS AND BUSINESS RELATED TOPICS. CONCURRENTLY, I WORKED IN THE CHAPMAN WRITING CENTER AS A TUTOR. THERE, I HELPED STUDENTS WITH THEIR WORK RANGING FROM INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS TO SCREENWRITING TO POLITICAL DISCOURSE.  

 

AFTER SPENDING MOST OF MY ADULT LIFE ATTENDING SCHOOL, I'VE ACCOMPLISHED MY DREAM OF EARNING A MASTERS DEGREE. I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO WORK HARD IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE PERSONAL GOALS AND I CAN HELP YOU DO THE SAME.

 

I THINK IT'S TIME TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE.

 

MY SKILLSET RANGES FROM CREATIVE WRITING COACHING, EDITING, TUTORING WRITING, CREATING PRESS RELEASES, GENERATING PUBLIC RELATIONS CAMPAIGNS, MARKETING AND BUSINESS PLANS.
