Carolina-Based, Unlimited Potential
Hi and welcome! I'm Justine.
I am a writer and editor-for-hire living in North Carolina, helping others with the words they need to reach their clients, build their businesses, and tell their stories.
I have a Master's degree in English (love that grammar), and am a foodie, amateur yogi, casual techie, avid reader, and mom to a Siberian husky and rescue kitty. I love TV (more than is probably good for me), freshly-brewed tea, and travel. On this blog, you'll find a healthy mix of daily life, pet adventures, travel notes, book recommendations (only if I really loved it), and more. That's the short version--you can head over to the blog to check out the fun!
The long version is this:
I have always loved words, as far back as I can remember. When I graduated from college, I tutored writing students and served as a teaching assistant while studying for my Master's degree in English. After earning my degree, I taught English composition and worked part-time in a food court, trying to make ends meet--but even working two jobs, I needed help from my family.
I went to professional school with the intent to get out of my parents' house and out on my own. And it worked--but long hours in a high-stress, high-pressure office environment were never completely satisfying.
So here I am--it was a long, roundabout way to get here, but I am finally doing what I was meant to do. In the television series Doctor Who, Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor tells his companion that "we're all stories in the end." This blog, this website, is my story. And I would love to have you along for the ride.
Life is busy, but it doesn't have to be overwhelming. There's always time for a good story, and we all have one.
