As an 18-year-old high school graduate, I didn't know what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. However, I did know that I loved animals and I loved science, so I put the two together and studied Animal Science at Delaware Valley University. My swine science, animal anatomy and physiology, and animal husbandry classes were some of my favorites--but I was simultaneously exploring my true career path I discovered in another department.
I have always loved writing and being creative. I've been a writer since I was a child and always enjoyed my English classes in school. It wasn't until I started taking some elective courses in media and communications where I discovered how I could translate my creativity into a career. I continued to take additional courses such as technical writing, news reporting and writing, media management, and marketing courses to complete my minor in media and communications. I knew I found my professional calling.
After working full-time for one year out of Delaware Valley University, I itched for more. I knew I could take my undergraduate minor further and improve my skills, and the English graduate studies program at West Chester University was a perfect fit. After about two years, I graduated with my master's degree in English with a concentration in writing, teaching, and criticism.
Since then, I have been working hard to combine my skills in writing, marketing, and communications to grow in my career. With seven years of marketing and creative experience from freelance writing to working in a digital marketing agency, I am eager to offer my skills where needed and I never stop learning.
