About Me

I’m Janelle Cox, freelance writer, wife, and mother of two.

As a Buffalo-New York based freelance writer I use my experience and expertise in education to craft original, thought-provoking articles for the online community. With over 10 years’ experience developing online content for educational companies, clients come to me for thorough-research and minimal editing articles. I have five years’ experience with SEO and HTML from my work running the education channel on Thoughtco.com (formerly About.com). This experience I believe would be an excellent match for any job position.

Being a children’s book author is my childhood dream, and I hope to one day make that dream a reality. As a freelance writer, it gives me a chance to hone my skills and make a little money while I offer my knowledge and experience to others. While the majority of my articles have been on a variety of topics from educational trends and professional development to teacher fitness tips and mindfulness, I am drawn to the following subject areas: health and wellness, mindful meditation, travel, parenting, and of course education.
