ACADEMIC CONSULTING

About me

WSCA2016_SanDiego_edited.png

I have been providing editing services for over a decade through my graduate and teaching careers. I have worked with undergraduate students and faculty in communication studies, sport management, and higher education. I have experience editing speeches, course papers, journal articles, grant applications, book proposals and manuscripts, job market and academic applications. I also have experience in proofreading (Macmillian Publishing).

I have a Master's degree in Communication Studies from California State University, Fullerton, and a doctoral degree in Higher Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from Florida State University. In addition, I possess a Graduate Certificate in Measurement and Statistics and a Graduate Certificate in Program Evaluation.

During the last several years, I have contributed to successful publications for projects funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and The Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice under the advisement of Dr. Lara Perez-Felkner.

One of my favorite parts about being an academic scholar is helping others organize their ideas, develop their arguments, and communicate effectively with targeted audiences.
