In 2018 I knew that I needed a change from my current role in the school district; I was working in the district office at the time, as a project facilitator–a quasi-administrator role. I knew I needed a change but I was unsure what that change might be, I didn’t know what would be the next best step for me.
So, I took all kinds of classes that interested me. I got two certifications–one in digital marketing and one editing. I got my first client for editing almost immediately but didn’t do much with it for some time. Recently, I have decided to pick it up again, and it’s been wonderful. So wonderful, I want to actively grow my clientele list and my work portfolio. No more here and there, no more wait and see, no more mere mentions in passing over lunch–I’m taking the full-blown initiative and saying: I’m here!
I have so enjoyed working with students as they delved into research, as they thought out loud, as they tried to make meaning and convert that meaning into a well-formed written piece. So, if you or someone you know is in need of a thought-partner, a writing coach, an editor, please reach out — I’d love to speak with you!
