Brandi Parsons

Editor, Ghostwriter, Writer

Writing. Dreaming. Creating.

As a child, I could not put down my paper and pencil. I wanted to write. So naturally, I listened to my mom when she said, "What are you going to do until you get a real job?" and did something practical (teaching) with the hope that I would be able to devote some time to writing in my free time. Sadly, that has not happened - until recently. I started blogging at www.brandiparsons.com and https://workingmom-brandi.blogspot.com/. I create content based on interactions I have with my children and all the fun, sloppy messes we make in the kitchen (or around the house). I have created newsletters for the Kirkwood High School Distance Learning program, written articles as a ghost writer for the Phi Delta Theta Iowa Beta Newsletter, and submitted grant applications on behalf of the Johnson STEAM Academy PTA. I also edit handbooks, presentations, and have a good understanding of video editing software and the YouTube editor.
