Hello, and welcome to my portfolio! My name is J. Christy McKibben; I’m a published Author and a 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.

My previous work experience was in healthcare (as an LPN and in Quality Improvement), customer service, childcare, and working as an administrative specialist.

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 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:

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

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

Below are just a few of the pieces I’ve written and designed. Don’t forget to check out my book on Amazon.
