Content Creator

I am a freelance writer and professional blogger specializing in health, wellness, personal development, and travel topics, as well as e-commerce, WordPress, spirituality, and social issues. I'm available to assist with website projects, product reviews, e-books, presentations, and more.

Prior to launching my freelance career in 2015, I spent 20 years in the field of customer service both as a worker bee and as a small business owner. I am the editor and co-author of the spiritual anthology Traveling Toward Enlightenment, a web content writer, and an online self-help store owner. My upcoming book about the sometimes humorous trials of trying to become a better person is due out in 2018. Email: [email protected]
