Back in 1992, I graduated from the University of Warwick in England with an Honours degree in Film and Literature Studies. I left with no real idea of what to do when I grew up. I did know it would have to be something to do with what I liked best though… words and communication.
I’ve been lucky enough to pursue my love of the written word throughout most of my career. There were a few blips… packing pies in a pork pie factory, dealing with customers in the construction business and, worst of all, working the night shift in a plastic cap production line. Still, all in all, my experience to date has left me fairly well-grounded, definitely well-rounded and off processed pies for life.
Some of the roles and industries I’ve enjoyed working in between 1992 and 2015 have included:
Please feel free to see what some of my clients and employers say about working with me.
Much of the training in my line of work is ‘on-the-job’, but over the last couple of years, I’ve also attended a number of conferences and ‘bootcamps’ on search engine optimisation in New Zealand and Australia. I keep up to date with writing techniques, web marketing and search engine optimisation by way of online seminars, reading and courses.
When I’m not writing or editing, I’m either reading, quietly scoffing licorice, trying out new recipes on my unsuspecting family, hiking, working out at the gym or dreaming of exciting new adventures for me, my husband and the two little bosses in my life, Lottie and Elliot.
For old friends and colleagues trying to get in touch, you may also have known me as Stephanie Beecher (Steph Beecher).
If you’d like me to help you out with your website optimisation or content, please get in touch. My experience means I can take on most optimisation, marketing and wordsmith roles.
