Prior to this, she was the Graphics/Marketing Coordinator for Randstad Staffing Services in Atlanta, GA where she helped produce newsletters, recruiting flyers, manuals, guidebooks, and slide presentations, and helped to provide temporary workers for the 1996 Olympics. She worked for another government contractor in Virginia from 1990-1992 as part of a fast-paced visual information production center at the Pentagon creating briefing and scheduling charts, as well as helping with marketing materials and proposals for the company. C.M.’s first job out of college was with Circuit City headquarters in Richmond, VA where she created and maintained graphic layouts and merchandising strategies of store displays. Working on a variety of projects ranging from small newsletters to large manuals that took a year to put together, she is used to detail-oriented work with deadlines. Her experience includes some writing, but her strongest skills are copyediting, proofreading, transcription (typing 70 wpm), data entry, and administrative skills. She has a B.A. in Journalism/English minor from Lynchburg College.
