Doresa has been writing and loving it since, well, first grade, maybe earlier, but that’s as far back as she can remember. At age six, she won first place for a Thanksgiving essay in her elementary school’s American Heritage Contest. Little did she know then that she’d make a career of writing, later in life.
Almost every year through twelfth grade, she wrote in her “School Years” memory book, designed to capture annual personal snapshots, she wanted to be a writer. In some aberrant years, her career choice was “artist” and “school teacher”; clearly she was high on carob at those times.
Despite those signs and continuous inner rumblings about needing to write, she veered off the path. At 22, she founded dbScribe, a San Diego-based medical transcription business, which she ran for eight years.
When done with that (so done, in fact), she sold the enterprise, finished a bachelor’s in Writing and Literature from the University of California, San Diego and moved to Reno in 2000. She vowed to pursue writing, whatever it took. And she did. Oh, and she earned a master’s in Journalism from the University of Nevada, Reno along the way.
Since, she’s been freelance writing for companies and publications, but, today, she focuses her services primarily on desktop and mobile website copy and content writing. Finally at peace with her own story, she thrives on helping businesses tell theirs.
