Theresa has always enjoyed writing. In school she relished any writing task assigned. When she taught school, she incorporated writing into any assignment possible. Even her first graders had 'Creative Writing Day' every Wednesday. They wrote little stories and then transferred them to books in the shape of something that related to the story. Theresa thought it was fun, however substitute teachers complained to the administration that it was the hardest job they'd ever done.

The year Theresa was preparing for retirement, she realized it was time to fulfill her life-long dream. She began writing and submitting to publishers directly. Every story was accepted. Later Theresa discovered that one should really go through an agent first.

Theresa began freelance writing in 2012. She writes articles, blogs, press releases, FAQs, and fiction stories. She writes to please the client, but will ask questions and do a little guidance if she feels the assignment is not going to serve in the client's best interest. A few clients have discovered, through her guidance, that what they requested was detrimental to their business. Adjustments were made and the client looked professional when Theresa finished the writing assignment.

Theresa is still working on her SEO education. She has been guided in SEO work by some of the same clients she advised in other writings. While she has learned a lot, she still needs guidance and appreciates any instructions she receives. She is not afraid to rewrite something to please the client.

Theresa is punctual and reliable. She thinks clear communication is the way for a client and writer to complete an assignment quickly. The more information Theresa has about the assignment, the more quickly and efficiently she can complete it. Once she understands the assignment and timeline, Theresa will work diligently to please the client.
