About Burton

In 2012 I graduated from Colby College with a Double Major in Spanish and Latin American Studies. My degree was writing intensive, as the workload consisted chiefly of research and literary response papers. This experience - coupled with my passion for writing and editing - has provided me the necessary skill-set to efficiently and effectively assist others in their writing endeavors. To date, I have edited not only college application essays and short-answers, but also film screenplays as well as fiction novels.

I am bilingual in English and Spanish, while also fully proficient in Portuguese. During my time at Colby, I worked three years as a Spanish and Portuguese tutor, assisting both beginner and advanced level students to draft and edit papers, as well as study for quizzes and exams. My main areas of expertise are English and Spanish writing composition and Spanish language development for general and business purposes.

To compliment my studies at Colby, I studied abroad at Universidad Alcala de Henares in Alcala de Henares, Spain, where I took classes in Business and Art. I also completed coursework at Universidad ORT, where my studies focused on Latin American History and Portuguese.

Currently, I work as a Senior Consultant in the Supply Chain industry, utilizing Spanish and Portuguese on a daily basis with our customers in Latin America.

Basketball and Soccer Qualifications:

In HS I was a 3 year starting PG for a team that won the NJ State Championship, as well as our County and Conference Championships. I later played on the D3 College level at Colby College, as well as abroad for Universidad ORT. My specialty lies in dribbling and shooting development.

In HS was also a 3 year starting midfielder for a team that won our Conference Championship for one of the most competitive conferences in NJ. I have also played in tournaments in Spain and Uruguay.
