Armed with a lifelong love of storytelling and the compelling intricacies of language, Casey prides herself in her ability to capture your voice and message. Her English degree, many years of experience, and eye for detail help her create and edit impeccably written content.
Casey spent many years working as a legal and executive assistant, crafting clearly worded memos, reports, and correspondence, before beginning to freelance on the side several years ago. It didn't take long to realize 1) she'd found what she really loved to do and 2) her clients were delighted with both the quality of her work and her unwavering professionalism (it's totally not bragging if it's in the third person).
In 2012, she took the leap to the uncertain world of full-time writing and editing, and has never looked back. Self-employment taxes and paying for her own health insurance are definitely worth getting to be her own boss.
