Just wondering if there is anyone I can ask about advice for going down this route? I’m a good at writing articles and would really love to have a career that falls under that line. Is there anyone that does?

It's not clear what you mean - do you mean you want a career in journalism, content writing, creative writing or something like that? I'm not sure how the thread title fits with your question here.

Content writing and creative writing or something like that
Then the real thing is to just get writing and write as much as you can for different outlets. So start a blog, or maybe a couple of blogs on different subject, maybe one creative and one comment on something that interests you - news, fashion, literature, business, science etc.

Look for voluntary content roles, for example if you are university - university society or departmental web pages - they often need updating.

Offer to write for a university or business newspaper or newsletter.

See if a local newspaper is prepared to accept 'citizen journalist' articles.

What you need to build is a portfolio of works, from different approaches/contexts/perspectives, do demonstrate your writing style. With that available, you'd be competitive for professional/career roles.
