About Loralee

Manahuu!

 

My name's Loralee, and I'm a freelance writer, editor, and strategist based on Tonga territory (Santa Ana, CA). ​I have over 2 years of professional writing experience, working as an in-house copywriter, SEO agency writer, and non-profit policy researcher.

 

Through my work, I've honed the skills necessary to produce eye-catching, well-researched copy for a wide range of audiences, voices, tones, and brands. I specialize in content creation for highly technical industries, including law firms, cloud web services, and medical marijuana evaluation services. I've produced everything from a comprehensive white paper on cybersecurity threats in the trucking industry to a snappy blog on healthy Thanksgiving alternatives. 

 

I received my B.A. in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing from Stanford University in 2018, and I am currently working toward my MFA in Creative Writing (Poetry) from the Institute of American Indian Arts. I hold a business license from the City of Santa Ana and meet the state of California's AB-5 requirements for independent contractors.

On a personal note, I am a proud Numu woman and a member of the Big Pine Paiute Tribe of the Owens Valley. I grew up on my territory in Big Pine, CA, and on Tongva territory in Costa Mesa, CA. 

 

In my spare time, I enjoy taking pictures of my cats, streaming Star Wars content with my husband, and working on my first collection of poetry.
