About Me

#ActuallyAutistic

My degree is a combination of English Literature and Biology. I've always had a passion for writing and recently started blogging and, currently, am in corporate communications. As I learn more about writing online and B2C marketing, I'd love to shift my writing skills into an online content writing and/or copywriting role. In my corporate communications position, I've developed a reputation for out-of-the-box thinking and creativity.

Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I am able to hyper-focus on projects in the right environment. I am able to see patterns and make connections others often miss and often think outside the box. I'm strong in self-learning - if I need to know how to do something, I can do the research and figure out how to do it. When given detailed guidance and expectations, I'm highly adaptable as well.
