University of Illinois (English)
After earning my BA in English from the University of Illinois, where I concentrated on writing about the greatest works from 19th century literature, I began my professional career in the advertising industry.
I honed my skills as an effective business writer working with high profile clients such as Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and Marriott Hotels. When I became a mom and wanted to work from home, I harnessed my passion for all things written while working in medical transcription, something I’ve been fortunate enough to do for the last 19 years.
I get a kick out of doctors actually dictating to me, “You know what I’m trying to say, Lori, so make it sound good.” Yes. That happens. Besides transcribing, I blog, tweet, and post on Facebook and Instagram, all great mediums for practicing good writing. Ask yourself, are you more likely to re-tweet something that makes sense or something that is garbled? Even the shortest of phrases has a big impact.
Not only will I share my passion for writing with you, I promise to help you discover your own!
Besides being a published writer and professional proofreader, I'm a mom who successfully guided my own children through four years at Deerfield high school, college essays, college coursework, and even grad school applications. I'd love to help you achieve the level of success that my own kids have achieved.
