SEO Copywriter, Cars Commerce presently
As a copywriter at Cars, I write search-engine-optimized copy for auto­motive dealer­ships all over the country. I consistently write to a high editorial stand­ard and have been tapped for two special projects in the first six months of employ­ment.
Senior Content Writer, Click Here Digital 2021–2023
I began my SEO copy­writing career as Click Here's first content writer under the SEO depart­ment. I worked with auto­motive, legal, and other clients, and helped our largest legal client over­haul their SEO strategy.
      During my tenure, I had the oppor­tunity to mentor and super­vise one full-time copy­writer as well as a college intern. As the Senior Content Writer on staff, I also devel­oped content guidelines, wrote under our own brand, and edited others' writing.
Library Technician, East Baton Rouge Parish Library 2017–2021
Library Technician II: After my promotion, I worked in both the Career Center and the Ref­erence Depart­ment at the main branch of the library. I helped patrons write and edit their résumés and apply for jobs, and I researched and answered patron questions about our collection, hours, and basically anything else.
Library Technician I: As a staff member of the Outreach Depart­ment, I drove one of four book­mobiles to EBR Parish day­cares and senior centers. I pro­vided im­mersive story times for local pre­school students, repre­sented the library at public events, and per­formed various clerical functions. I also developed an internal system for efficiently selecting books for 140 pre&school centers each month.
Press Operator, S & S Printing 2015–2017
I was the first employee S & S Printing had ever hired, so I served as more than just a press oper­ator. Along­side oper­ating the digital press and other machines required to finish each job, I performed cust­omer service tasks, commun­icated with clients about job progress, managed oper­ations while the owner was away, and even deliv­ered finished products. Notably, I devel­oped an online order form to exped­iate repeat orders for our largest client.
Graduate Teaching Assistant, Northern Arizona University 2013–2015
While pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing from NAU, I taught a class in English composition each semester and tutored in the university's Writing Center. I was given nearly free reign on course design, and developed my own syllabus, lesson plans, rubrics, and classroom policies. I also edited students' work, coached them on their writing, facilitated group workshop sessions, graded papers, and collaborated with other GTAs to develop materials.
