Hire Me!

Since graduating from the University of Michigan in 2013, I’ve held countless job titles and earned a variety of experiences. My specialties include writing, editing, and travel/event planning. If you happen to live in the area, I do offer photography services as well.

Travel/Event Planning

So far, I’ve traveled to over 15 countries and led extensive tours throughout the US. From June 2015 – October 2015 I held a seasonal job as a full-time tour guide, which included driving a transit passenger van, with up to 14 foreign passengers, and planning the itinerary of a 3-21 day road trip.

My trips are usually more for the budget-friendly than luxury travel.

If you don’t have time to plan your own trip or would like advice on a particular area, I can help!


I graduated with an English degree, which is useful for proofreading and producing high-quality content. I’ve previously worked as a professional proofreader for Kaplan, as a scorer for state standardized tests.

In terms of writing, I specialize in travel, book reviews, and lifestyle writing. My copy can be either conversational or professional, but always engaging. Feel free to browse my previous blog posts for examples of my work:

Travel Writing: 

Book Reviews

My favorite genres include fantasy, romance, race/ethnicity, and literary novels. I read rather quickly, at about 1-2 books a week for quick turnaround. Some of my book reviews are listed below, including a monthly roundup featured on the blog.

Image Creation/Photography

If you need images created for a certain post, or optimized for Pinterest, I can help you as well! For example, check out the graphic I provided for my What to Pack for a 2-week USA Roadtrip post.

Many of the photos on this site are self-generated. I’ve had experience in engagement, landscape, event, and product photography. My photography equipment includes a Canon EOS Rebel t3i, 50mm prime lens, 10-22mm zoom lens, and 18-135mm zoom lens. These cover a large range of capabilities to suit a range of needs.

If you live in the Chicagoland area and are interested in partnering for a photography engagement, feel free to contact me.

Current Occupation

Currently, I work as a full-time, on-site marketing coordinator at a tech consulting company, executing email marketing campaigns, writing copy for the website, and creating case studies heavy in technical language.

If you require assistance with creating marketing campaigns, managing an email newsletter, or writing copy for any part of your site, I am here for you.

If you are interested in hiring me for any of the above, you can contact me here (mishfishh13 at gmail.com). My rates are fair and flexible. I’m sure we’ll be able to find something to make everyone happy!
