Job Type: Permanent
developing myself in the writing field, I have volunteered, freelanced or worked professionally as a journalist and as an editor. I have been writing articles for newspapers and magazines since I started high school. Being an English buff all of my education life, I mastered my skills in editing as I went through high school and college.
For a year and a half, I was in the Army stationed at Fort Hood, TX as a public affairs specialist, which is also known as a photojournalist. In between preparing for deployment and doing our additional military duties, we helped support the Fort Hood Sentinel, the post's newspaper in writing articles and taking photos on military events on and off post.
After leaving the military, I began working at the Killeen Daily Herald initially as a freelance journalist. A couple of months later, I was hired full time as an editorial assistant. I also supported the editorial department with administrative needs, which included writing and editing news briefs, births, obituaries, and building permits, I continued to write articles for multiple sections of the paper, most commonly the features and religion sections. For the majority of my time
with the newspaper, I wrote the Sunday “Farewell” articles, which highlighted local residents who made a positive impact in their community.
In 2010, I obtained my master’s online in entertainment business from Full Sail University, where I graduated with honors.
I am currently developing my skills in inspirational/motivational writing, and I am revisiting my skills in creative writing. I believe that my purpose in life is to inspire others to understand life and to see things in life from a different perspective. My ideal job would be one in which I use my current skills and develop new skills to help others in an impactful way.
My specialties include the following:
Journalistic writing and editing
Media monitoring and coordinating
Creative writing and editing
