Overview

Hi! I'm McKayla, and I love words! I hold a degree in Strategic Communications with a minor in Journalism. Public Relations makes up most of my day, but I moonlight in music journalism and editing.

Every time I find myself correcting typos in a novel, it solidifies my belief that I need to be editing professionally. When I'm not mentally proofreading, I'm writing content for clients in the public relations industry and developing editorials for publication at a music magazine.

My passions include live music and books that either educate or give me the warm fuzzies.
