45 years of writing experience specializing in research, editing, content writing, and proofreading.

Content specialties: Travel, education, human rights, and wellness

Hi! I’m Jody, a freelance writer with both writing and content specialties

I’m a bit of a “Renaissance woman,” as I have lots of eclectic interests ranging from SCUBA, ballroom dance, travel, wellbeing, and cats to human rights issues involving refugees, asylum seekers, and the environment. I also lost 50 pounds in 2017 and have kept it off, so I have an interest in the health and wellness market.

I have been a professor teaching in social, international, and comparative education, and interdisciplinary social science topics for 19 years. As I look towards retiring from that occupation in 3-4 years, I am currently working part-time at freelance with the goal of full-time freelance work in a few short years.

What I Can Do to Help You

My academic training has given me expertise in researching, writing, editing, and proofreading. I have published everything from a children’s book used extensively by SMART (the Sarasota Manatee Association for Riding Therapy) to academic journal articles, chapters, and books to blog posts.

My work for you will involve a detailed conversation so that I understand your needs. I will create a content brief targeting primary and secondary keywords and more with ways to solve your challenges and increase your visibility.

Why Me? Why Not Someone Else?

There are plenty of really good freelance writers. With me, you will get decades of experience and a masterful level of research, writing, editing, and proofreading. I will work with you in a timely manner to create just what you want.
