I am an experienced administrative assistant, copyeditor, proofreader, and project manager, in addition to having many years of experience in an office setting (data entry, accounts payable/receivable, spreadsheets, billing, etc.).
I have been running my own administrative and editing business since 2005. For the past 2 years, I have been an SEO/Social Media Administrator.
Prior to starting the business, I held a full-time position as a copyeditor/editorial assistant for Idea Group Publishing in Hershey, Pennsylvania, where I was employed for more than two years until my relocation to Florida in 2005. I also worked full time as an administrative assistant and a paralegal.
