Welcome to My Professional Writing Portfolio


Dear Reader,


Welcome to my portfolio, and thank you for taking the time to browse the sections and documents I have provided. I am originally from Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, but I graduated in 2014 with a degree in English with a concentration in Professional Writing & Rhetoric from Elon University in North Carolina. I have always appreciated the value of written and visual communication. With an eye for detail and an understanding of rhetoric, I look forward to putting my knowledge and appreciation into use in my future professional endeavors.


In this portfolio, you will find sample documents representing the rhetorical skills I have acquired and honed as an undergraduate. Some of these documents were completed in class, and others are from my previous internships and involvement in the Elon Community. I have separated my portfolio into three sections that reflect my talents in marketing, visual design, and collaboration. These sections include projects I have completed along with contextual narratives explaining the practical application of the knowledge I have gained and the rhetorical decisions I made throughout the process. 


This portfolio is meant to show my ability to communicate effectively through text and visuals, deliver products to a client, edit professional pieces and websites, and market an intended message to a specific audience through different mediums. I hope that after browsing my portfolio you have a better understanding of my experience, skills, and identity as a professional writer. 


Thank you for reviewing my portfolio, and please let me know if you have any questions!
