Hi, My name is Shelly, and I'm currently working as a writer in my company's Marketing Communications department. Much of my time is focused on writing promotional brochure, newsletter, HTML and Web copy, among many other pieces. Prior to this position, I worked in the travel industry, writing various pieces on destinations around the world. I've also worked in the communications division of a Fortune 500 insurance company, and served as news editor of the Iowa State Daily. Outside of work, I freelance everything from blog ghostwriting to eBooks. I'd love the opportunity to work with you on your next project. For more information, a resume, or references, feel free to email me at Thanks!
