Work Experience

Work Experience
K5 Learning, Children's Story Writer
2021 - Present
I propose monthly fiction and nonfiction story topics and plotlines and then research and write stories based on target word counts, Lexile scores, and grade levels. I also create 3-4 reading exercises per story, including multiple choice, short responses, and activities. Based on a secondary reader’s feedback, I then complete revisions.
Best Version Media, Content Coordinator
2019 - Present
In this role, I am the primary creator and editor of all submitted written content to each monthly issue of a neighborhood magazine that is distributed to over 4,000 homes. I write resident features, calendars of events, and general family-friendly content articles in AP style. In each editorial proofing, I also conduct line-proofing and page-proofs in order to maintain consistency, credibility, and originality.
Florida Gulf Coast University, Writing Consultant
2019 - 2021
As a Writing Consultant, I worked with students in one-on-one and occasional small groups on a variety of academic, creative, and personal written content. I am proficient in brainstorming topic ideas; crafting strong and original thesis statements; organizing essays; writing grammatically strong sentences; and correctly citing sources in APA, MLA, AP, and Chicago. The primary goal of the Writing Lab and its tutors is to encourage the acquisition of writing skills and build each student's comfort and confidence in their writing.
