From an early age, I was smitten with the written word. Reading and writing could transport me to other places, where I could meet fantastic creatures and explore exciting new worlds.

In order to feed my reading habit, I took a job as a teen at an indie bookstore so I could immerse myself. Within a few years, I became store manager and stayed until the store's closing in May 2011.

I just can't leave books alone, though. I recently took a job for one day a week at another local indie bookstore where they let me come in to help customers with recommendations. And I get to smell the delicious aroma of old paper and book paste all day long. It's heaven.

For the past 7 years, I have also been working in the marketing department of a renewable energies company, taking care of their social media and web content.

Proofing and editing are second nature and I have an in-depth knowledge of SEO/SEM best practices. I am very comfortable creating content around select keywords to increase web traffic. Quality is extremely important to me and I try to always adhere to the best writing standards possible.

So here I am, a reading and writing maniac with lots of things to share with the world.

By the way, my husband and I are very active volunteers with Northern California Beagle Rescue (http://www.norcalbeagles.com) - always have to give a shoutout for this fabulous rescue organization! We have fostered and adopted so many beagles over the year - we currently have 2 young former research beagles named Wilson and Maya that light up our lives with their crazy antics.

And since the beagle rescue world apparently couldn't keep me busy enough, I also decided to venture into the amazing world of beekeeping. It's been an incredible learning experience and I love learning more about the world we live in. Everything and everyone is connected on this planet, so we need to make sure we understand those connections and how we can keep them strong. 

Thanks for indulging me by reading my profile - see you around Hubpages!
