Velma is an award-winning journalist, who is enjoying exploring online freelancing.
Her beat was lifestyles, but occasional hard news stories and accompanying photos were accomplished. Stories about frilly dresses, giggly brides and anything around the home may be her mainstay, but she is completely at ease researching and producing an in-depth historical article, business or shopping story.
She won state feature writing and multi-media awards -- "Disaster on the SS Sultana" and "Finding Our Own In The Blue And Gray."
She is an experienced, thorough researcher who digs to the bottom of a project to be sure her work is accurate.
Having worked on deadlines for much of her life, she can deliver -- with time to spare.
She's dependable, knowledgeable and gifted. She "relaxes" by tackling writing projects.
