What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I typically begin with a 1-hour interview (either in-person or over the phone), which allows me to get to know my client and find out their career goals/needs. Follow-up calls and emails are done throughout the process, as needed. My goal is to get as close to perfect as possible on the 1st draft, but I give up to 3 drafts to my clients. Final versions are given in either Pages or Word format, and also in PDF.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Journalism degree (cum laude) from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, Athens. I also earned a Masters of Business Administration in Marketing from the Williams College of Business at Xavier University, Cincinnati.
