Hello. I am a full time student. I am currently working on my 2nd BA with a major in History. Then I will be going on to grad school where I will earn my MA in History. After that I plan on pursuing my PhD in History. I love writing and doing research, so working as a freelance writer is a dream come true for me. I earned my high school diploma in 2000 and then went on to earn my AA in Sociology and Communications. After that I took a few years off to write (worked as a freelance writer) and work as a financial aid advisor at a small private school. I also decided to start my family during this time and had my first child in 2003. I then went on to earn my BA in 2006 in Sociology and African American Studies. After graduating I continued freelancing (even though I'm new to Freelancer I have worked as a freelance writer for over 16 years!) and worked in social work for 6 years before adding to my family and deciding to stay home with my 4 children. I love to write!!

Freelance Writer

Jan 2003 - Sep 2018 (15 years)

I have been working as a freelance writer for over 16 years and have loved every minute. One of my favorite things to do in life is to research and write, so I actually returned to school with the intention of going until I have my PhD in History. I have written for newspapers both local and online, blogs (even had a successful mom blog 10K+ visitors a month for a few years), article databases, and more. I love writing and can tackle any project with confidence.
