Connie has a strong administrative background and has worked in the areas of banking, engineering and telecommunications. She also has 10 years of direct sales experience in the beauty industry. However, Connie began her writing career writing about topics she had no real-life experience in, yet had a passion for.

From July 2010 to October 2011, Connie drew on her passion for health and wellness and utilized her strong research skills to pen over 200 articles for LIVESTRONG.com that primarily focused on diet and exercise. She also drew on her real-life experience with credit and debt problems to write personal finance articles for both eHow.com (via Demand Studios) and Bright Hub.com.

From October 2010 to March 2012, Connie joined Optimized Scribes, a writing team who provides article writing services to private clients.(Under conditions of the agreement with Optimized Scribes, the name of the clients mentioned cannot be divulged.) Connie researched and wrote informative criminal and personal injury law articles targeted toward individuals who found themselves in need of legal services. These SEO articles were published on attorney website blogs.

Working with Optimized Scribes also gave Connie the opportunity to write webpage content for a private client who was a self-made entrepreneur and life coach.
