Hi! I’m Melissa, a full-time and freelance editor and social media specialist located in the Greater Boston area. I’ve been writing since I was old enough to hold a pen – probably around four years old, and I’ve been editing since I learned the joy of using red ink.
I’ve been providing professional copy writing and editing services for more than four years. I split my time between offering full-scale web copywriting services, editing manuscripts and providing cover letter and resume development. My expertise lies primarily in proofing works of fiction.
I began my career as a fledgling copy writer in Salt Lake City, providing product descriptions for an e-Commerce company, then later transitioned to technical writing. I found my place in large-scale copy writing, lending a distinct brand voice to companies ranging from financial institutions, to flooring contractors and even environmental/green organizations.
The Important Details:
I am a member of the Freelancers Union.
I hold my B.A. in Editorial Journalism from the University of Utah.
I am an experienced Beta Reader for numerous novels.
Good grammar is the way to my heart.
In my free time, I’m an avid open water swimmer, and I happily blog over at my Young Adult book reviewing website, i swim for oceans. I also enjoy traveling, learning languages and laughing…loudly and inappropriately.
