Hello! My name is J. Christy McKibben; I’m a published Author and Freelance Writer.

My first publication is entitled Living in Darkness: Understanding the Dark Cloud of Depression.

In addition to writing and editing eBooks, I have experience writing and editing articles and blog posts, as well as: brochures, copywriting, glossary pages, manuals, newsletters, PowerPoint presentations, proofreading, SEO copywriting, technical writing/editing, website copy, and working in WordPress.

I graduated from Arizona State University, Summa Cum Laude, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Technical Communication. I also earned my Associate of Applied Science degree in Practical Nursing, with honors and Phi Theta Kappa, from Hennepin Technical College. In addition, I’m a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), and a proud member of the Golden Key International Honour Society.

I’ve lived in different parts of the country including: Virginia, Ohio, Minnesota, Florida, and (currently) North Carolina. Before becoming a freelance writer and blogger, my previous work experience consisted of:

  • Childcare (daycare center) for 3 years.
  • Customer service (via telephone) for 4 years.
  • Administrative Specialist at The University of Minnesota for nearly 5 years. Part of my role included writing and editing several newsletters: weekly, quarterly, and yearly.
  • Healthcare (Nurse and Nurse Auditor/Quality Improvement) for 7 years.

I’ve written, guest blogged, and proofread for content marketing; in which I’ve researched and written extensively about mental health, childcare, addiction, and healthcare (among other topics).

I’m comfortable researching and writing about any subject. However, some of my specialties include:

  • Pet Care
  • Childcare
  • Healthcare/Mental Health
  • Health & Fitness
  • Lifestyle
  • Pet Care
  • Technical Writing & Editing

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can help you out with any project. No project is too big or too small!
