About Me


Thanks for stopping by to learn more about me!


My name is Jennifer Nelson, and I'm a freelance writer based in central Illinois.


To date, I have had  1000 articles published, both credited and ghostwritten, on a variety of topics including health and pets. 


Add in my 12+ years as a dog groomer and 2 years as a volunteer at the Denver Zoo, and I'm quite the expert on writing about animals and dogs in particular. A vast knowledge of dog health issues led easily to writing about human health issues. 


I can write anything from a viral video commentary to an in-depth feature article. I can curate my content or take your ideas and run with them.


Don't let my animal experience fool you - I'm comfortable writing about a variety of topics and my research skills are . 


I have knowledge of WordPress and SEO and I'm equally comfortable with Word or Google docs. I also know where to find free stock photos for commercial to accompany my articles when necessary. I'm also familiar with content management platforms like Asana, Trello, and Slack.


Please contact me to see if I might be the right fit for your project!
