Cover Letter for Michelle Chandler
To Whom it May Concern:
Please accept this letter and the accompanying resume as my application for being a blogger for Bump Girl.
I am a mother of three children, James (13), Alesy (10) and Ruby (5). I am excited to start a new chapter in my life as my youngest just started kindergarten this fall. I have been a stay at home mother for the past 12 years but have also enjoyed bringing in other work experiences from many different fields. I received my bachelors of science in Landscape Design and Horticulture and did contractual work periodically along with floral arranging for weddings and other events. I enjoyed teaching Piano and voice lessons for a few years until my youngest came along and we moved cities to a new neighborhood. Recently I had the opportunity of volunteering and working around 8-12 hrs a week at Safe Haven a resource center for domestic violence. It was a humbling experice to be a part of helping women that have experience domestic violenceEach added job onto being a mother has brought many life lessons and joy.
I believe my skills and experience are a good match to the criteria for this position. I love to write especially about day to day life of the ups and downs of motherhood. Having three busy kids has taught me that life is rarely normal or perfect looking and I love to be honest about what the reality of motherhood really is. I deeply love my kids and enjoy watching them grow but also know the importance of maintaining my individualism, dreams and my wellbeing. Which is why I am now looking forward to a little more freedom to explore and bring more adventures into my life.
