Jennifer T is different from a lot of other freelancers because she comes from journalism. She knows how to write for a broad audience and produce clean, error-free content.

She'll put her experience in the following areas to work for you:

* Writing: Jennifer has been writing for an audience for many years as a journalist. She'll get to the heart of your content's purpose and connect it to your audience.
* Interviewing and researching: She'll ask questions until she understands your business and products, and your content marketing goals. Jennifer learns what she needs to know by talking to you or your clients, or finding good background sources.
* Meeting deadlines: Deadlines are not just suggestions; they're a binding commitment. In journalism, if Jennifer didn't meet her deadlines, the newspaper didn't get published, and readers were angry. She'll finish your project on time and keep you happy.
* Editing: Jennifer produces clean copy that you won't have to spend a lot of time correcting, and she can edit other people's copy, too. She has worked with editors and project supervisors, and she'll work with you to make sure the copy is what you want.
* Teaching: Five years of teaching college journalism classes have honed Jennifer's ability to explain simple and complex concepts. Once she understands your topic, she can explain it clearly and concisely.

Jennifer has been writing and editing since high school. She did really well on a newspaper assignment in her sophomore English teacher's class. The teacher was also the newspaper adviser, and she begged Jennifer to join the journalism staff. Her destiny was set.

Jennifer decided she wanted to be a professional journalist. She earned both a bachelor's and master's degree in journalism, from Morehead State University and Ohio University respectively. For the first nine years of her career, she grew in her writing and editing skills at a variety of newspapers and magazines.

She learned to be a fast, versatile writer who can take complex information and present it to an audience. Her copyediting skills are almost obsessive-compulsive. She notices errors everywhere, especially online. Misspelled and misused words in blogs and news stories catch her eye, and abused apostrophes and run-on sentences jump right out at her.

Later in Jennifer's career, she grabbed the chance to teach college media classes at two Kentucky regional universities. She taught feature writing and media writing classes, as well as a unique class that instructed students how to tell multimedia stories using a blog.

Jennifer has dedicated her career to writing for the public. She has worked with editors who helped her improve, and she has taught others how to write and edit better. Now, she's using her experience and ability to write and edit great content to help you.
