I am an experienced content writer, having spent nearly five years posting daily to my blog while also working on a variety of other projects. My work has given me extensive experience in writing content of varying lengths, as well as plenty of proximate skills.
Although I mainly work in the sphere of chronic illness and disability, I'm a generalist who effortlessly dips her toes into new topics. Since I work independently, I am a strong self-editor and do not require much guidance to produce stellar pieces.
I would love to discuss how I can help you fill your site with great content! Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or inquiries.
