I have enjoyed the written word for as long as I can remember. I derive joy both from reading what others have written as well as creating something of my own for others to read. Most of my writing experience is either academic or professional. Throughout my high school and college years, I thoroughly enjoyed completing research projects. I enjoyed learning about new things and writing about what I have learned. In fact, I still find that enjoyable to this day. After graduating from college with a bachelor degree in human services, I spent the next 7 years working in the social work field. Most of my writing experience throughout these years, I admit, was rather monotonous and not quite as enjoyable, as I was face with mountains of paperwork on a daily basis. This leads us to present day. I have recently made the decision to leave the social work pursue a career in writing. I am very excited to embark on this new journey!
