I am the sole proprietor of Writing and Editing by M. Shoup. I live and work in Bellingham, Washington. Freelancing is a second job for me. I currently hold a full-time editing position.
I completed a degree in Environmental Studies/Journalism through Western Washington University’s Huxley College. In my spare time I read, game and homestead. I was born in North Carolina and lived there for almost 14 years before moving to Germany with my family. There I traveled Europe and saw parts of Africa before moving to Bellingham, Washington to attend school. I powered through my degree in three years and now hold a full-time job as an editor with a press release distribution company. I spend a lot of time volunteering for my church as well, helping with marketing, the newsletter and all things related to public relations.
