"I am an accomplished, innovative, professional freelance copywriter and editor with extensive experience contributing to a variety of companies, websites and publications. I am also a freelance essayist helping high school seniors write and edit their college application essays from start to finish. I have coached more than 80 high school seniors online and over the phone, and many were accepted to their top-choice colleges.

I have a BA in English from Stanford and an MFA in Writing from the University of San Francisco. I am a regular contributor to Stanford Magazine.

I researched, edited, wrote, formatted and helped to design the newsletter. I completed four months in 2013 as a part-time, temporary freelance compiler of the Stanford News Digest, a daily e-newsletter read by Stanford faculty and staff.
