J. Christy McKibben holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Technical Communication from Arizona State University. She also earned her Associate of Applied Science degree in Practical Nursing from Hennepin Technical College in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. Although no longer a practicing nurse, Christy keeps up with relevant continuing education to maintain her active North Carolina nursing license (#76621).

Over the years, while searching for her “just-right” career, Christy tackled many different occupations. These professions included working as a preschool teacher, a customer service representative, an administrative specialist, a nurse, and a quality improvement nurse.

It was while working as an administrative specialist that Christy discovered her writing talent, as well as the ability to spot the smallest of errors in others’ written work. These natural abilities were honed throughout the years and are used to this day.

One day, Christy decided that all of her previous careers were guiding her towards what she wanted…working remotely as a writer, editor, and proofreader. This move was the most rewarding turnaround that she’s ever experienced. Christy plans to stay in this discipline and expand upon her skills and other genres in the field.

Animals are everything to Christy, especially cats! She can’t get enough of them and volunteers at a no-kill cat shelter weekly; as well as writing and editing their weekly internal newsletter.

Doting purrs, biscuits in motion, and head boops make any day a great day!
