Content Writer, Editor

Location icon United States of America

My career began in academia, where I pursued my intellectual curiosity as a student, teacher, tutor, and researcher. I have taught French, Spanish, Math, SAT/ACT Prep, English, and History to students of all ages. I've created curriculums and designed lesson plans.

After receiving my Ph.D. from Harvard University, I continued to follow my passion for research and writing. I've published featured real estate articles on Zillow.com and Yahoo! News. As an Editor at eNotes.com, I wrote blog posts, articles, landing pages, newsletters, and lesson plans.

I am now looking for my next opportunity to put my talents and experience as a content writer to use.
