I have nearly 10 years of experience in writing and editing, having spent nearly eight as a daily newspaper reporter. I am now moving into other forms of writing as a freelancer. I plan to enroll in Boise State in January 2013 and eventually earn a masters of English in rhetoric and composition. With that degree, I'll pursue a college teaching career while continuing to freelance.
