Amy began her official writing career as a blogger. When she began blogging, writing about her personal and sometimes hilarious experiences as a mom of three young children seemed appropriate.
Around the same time, she also generated content for a local parenting blog. Although it was also centered around parenting, this allowed her the freedom to write content about more serious topics such as childhood anxiety, picky eating, and mental health struggles. As a parent of children with mental health battles, she is also an advocate for mental health.
While writing for the parenting blog, she researched and wrote content about local parks, family-friendly restaurants, and other entertainment venues.
When Amy began her latest role as Social Media Chair for her children's school, she had a more specific audience. Amy was not as tasked with personalized stories as before. Instead, she wrote about fundraising efforts, school events, and Covid-19 guidelines.
As Social Media Chair, she was responsible for maintaining the website content and all social media accounts. Some days it was a witty Facebook post about Lost and Found, but more often than not, it was generating engaging content about the latest fundraiser.
While she has focused primarily on parenting, she has plenty of experience in other industries, not limited to hospitality and higher education.
While at WriterAccess, she has created web page content (specifically landing pages) for many industries, including the automotive, hospitality, and commercial cleaning sectors. She enjoys writing long-form travel guides, blog posts, and mental health articles.
She completed HubSpot's SEO certification and has completed roughly fifty projects using Surfer SEO.
Before her writing career, Amy worked in the hospitality industry- specifically in restaurants and catering. She grew up in a restaurant family, spending time at her parent's restaurant after school. Amy sometimes peeled and deveined shrimp as a young child in the restaurant kitchen.
As an adult, she worked as a catering employee and became a catering manager with a regional chain. She is very familiar with the ins and outs of restaurants and off-site catering. She would love to write in this industry space.
Amy also worked in higher education in three different capacities. She worked with Deans to implement software for their students and worked directly with students as an Academic Advisor. Amy also has experience in for-profit higher education.
Amy is a mother of three children and an owner of four pets. While she's hardly an "expert parent," she would love to write about parenting (children or animals).
In addition, Amy is curious by nature and loves to research pretty much anything. She has written on medical billing, appliances, mental health, travel, and commercial cleaning companies.
Amy has generated content for two parenting blogs since 2015. She also has three children of her own.
Amy worked in higher education in three different spaces (Academic Advisor to students, Software Trainer to deans and staff, and Admissions Representative to prospective students) so she is well-versed in multiple aspects of higher ed.
Amy grew up in a restaurant family spending her weekday afternoons peeling and deveining shrimp in the restaurant's kitchen. As an adult, she worked for a regional chain as the off-site Catering Manager for seven years.
Before her 18th birthday, Amy was lucky enough to travel with her grandmother around the world. She has been to Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, and during the same trip, she visited St. Petersburg, Russia. That trip, along with others, gave her the travel bug, whether through actual travel or through research.
While working as a contributor for Austin Moms, she wrote several local travel pieces but broadened her travel projects since writing at Writer Access. She loves to write short and long articles on the best places to eat or visit in a city or area.
Amy loves to inject a little humor (where applicable) into her pieces and thoroughly enjoys researching the history and culture of new places.
While Amy wasn't born with a green thumb, she has learned a lot about plants over the years. She began writing in the garden sector at Writer Access, with numerous articles on caring for your plants.
She researched over twenty plants for the articles and determined that she personally should stick with native perennials for her home garden in Texas. However, she has fun researching the fertilizer, temperature, and sun requirements for various flora and fauna.
Since writing for Writer Access, Amy has completed at least ten articles for a large appliance company. Most articles were guides to help the consumer decide which type of appliance to purchase, but some were listicles of the top appliances for specific needs.
Amy mainly wrote about various types of refrigerators, washers, and dryers.
Amy started writing with a parenting blog early on in her child-rearing years. While it never achieved any viral status or financial compensation, she enjoyed it immensely. There was always a story to write with three kids, three dogs, and a cat (and a parakeet and guinea pigs at one time).
She also wrote for a local parenting blog, Austin Moms, while she was a stay-at-home parent.
As her children are a little older, Amy began writing for Writer Access and has enjoyed writing parenting blogs for schools, Instagram posts for local kid-friendly events, and articles for a tutoring company.
She loves to inject a dose of humor when appropriate.
Amy started blogging in 2015 with the creation of her own WordPress site. She then wrote for a local parenting blog Austin Moms. Most recently she updated the school PTO's website and generated content for all of the school's fundraising efforts.
Amy was the Social Media Chair for her school's PTO, so she was responsible for multiple Facebook posts a week. The posts were informational with the right bit of humor.
During her tenure at WriterAccess, Amy has written several landing pages for companies throughout various industries. She assisted a commercial cleaning company with writing different landing pages for many of its franchise locations. In addition, she has written landing pages for automotive parts as well as hospitality supply companies.
In addition to blog posts, Amy has written many long-form articles. While she loves the hospitality and food service industries, she loves researching new things just as much. She can write confidently about many subject areas.
