Dedicated Writer and Editor

I am a freelance editor and writer in the human interests niche. My general skills include (but are not limited to) excellent English grammar and sentence constructions, attention to detail, SEO knowledge, absolute avoidance of plagiarism, creativity and good communication skills. My writing interests are easily transferable into most niches as I am driven by presenting clear content which can be easily related to.
My employers all know that when they hire me on, I will always ask if I'm not sure, yet, I am brave and creative enough to work with minimal supervision. I always meet deadlines and go the extra mile, often my employers have asked my opinion and feedback on additional tasks, and I enjoy being able to assist where I can. (It's not just about the money, and I take pride in my work)
Professionally, I have obtained two bachelor's degrees, a Post Graduate Certificate in Teaching and continue developing new skills through various online resources such as Udemy. I have over ten years teaching experience, and I am incredibly hard working.

Some of my clients include Moboreader (editing and ghost writing), Rev.com (video captioning and editing) and the Livingston Research Institute (editing and writing), but my portfolio is constantly growing. I have wide ranging interests and easily adapt to a new online environment or platform.

I live in South Africa with my beautiful family which includes 7 dogs and 3 horses (no, I'm not a cat lady).
