The past five years have been productive and successful for Crystal as both a writer and an editor. She has written, edited, and collaborated with publishers, authors, and clients to create various types of content including:
? Books—collaborative writing, ghostwriting, editing, formatting, front and back matter, table of content, and indices
? Articles—magazines, news, and website content
? Blogs
? Content development—evergreen copy, SEO, naturally including search terms, and rewriting preexisting content
? Resume writing—cover letters, resumes, vitas, proposals, and acceptance or declination letters
? Business writing—Memorandums, emails, general and grant proposals, research, reports, notices, manuals, internal documents, and website development writing

In addition, she has always been able to multitask. Managing multiple projects with varying deadlines is one of her strengths. Her time management and organization skills allow her to complete and submit work within the assigned deadline. She pays close attention to details and instructions to create content that meets the required criteria, contains substantial material, and is ready to be published. Crystal guarantees polished, reliable, accurate, relatable, and relevant content that defines and promotes the company’s brand and image. As an effective communicator, she is able to work with individuals that have diverse backgrounds, maintain confidence, and mediate solutions to complex problems. She demonstrates professionalism and displays decorum in all of her encounters and correspondences.

Crystal's work ethic is strong. She welcomes challenges, is prepared to overcome adversity and obstacles, and quickly adapts and adjust to sudden or frequent changes during the completion of a project. She has relied on her can-do attitude to obtain success and stay motivated. Her positive outlook allows me to encourage and inspire team members to be upbeat and excited and to continually work together, even in the face of complications and setbacks. She believes in working until there is no more work.
