About

Chantel Baul

I'm originally from Savannah, GA, but I relocate here and there as military folks often do. I recently married an active duty infantry officer, and I serve in the Reserves as an HR officer as well. Aside from the army life as an army wife, I am totally driven by an affinity for composition. I value the writing craft because it is an essentiality of human communication. I incorporate my appreciation for rhetoric into my professional work and am avidly looking for opportunities that allow me to continue to do so. I have experience in technical editing and proofreading as well as freelance journalism and blogging. My overall goal in all of my efforts is to continue to learn and improve upon myself, and it's happening everyday.

Thanks for stopping by!
