    After 15 years as a newspaper reporter, I want to put my research, writing and editing skills to work for my own benefit. I have extensive background in government, public finance and history along with the ability to spin a great feature story. I can write clear, concise copy on deadline. If you already have written it, I can both proofread and edit your writing. (They are different skillsets and not everyone can do both.) I also can teach you how to be a better writer. As far as research, I don't know everything but I do know where to find everything beyond just mass data scraping. I won a research award long before the Internet. I also can take all that information and condense to something the average reader can understand.  less

    ### As a writer, I believe in telling stories - engaging, entertaining and highly relevant stories. Stories that build brands and move the sales needle at the same time. After 15+ years in this business I know that they are not mutually exclusive. Telling a better, more relevant story is what leads to creative that connects. I've crafted stories for consumers, shareholders, employees, CEOs and middle brand managers of vertical markets with Napoleon complexes. I can put my wide variety of experiences to use in crafting messaging that connects for your brand. ###  less

    I am currently doing volunteer teaching work in France. I speak, read and write both English and French with English being my first language. I have done translation and interperting work on an individual basis and for large groups. Over the past 4 years I've worked as a Licensed Personal Banker for 2 large banks in New York. Within the bank I managed the sales team, was responsible for meeting sales goals and assisted the manager in managing all funtions of the branch. I have strong sales skills but also excellent oral and written communication skills. Part of my job was written communication with clients from diverse backgrounds. This helped me to become proficient in writing, proofreading, and correction. Also I have worked as a Personal Assistant and Manager where I was in charge of organizing meetings, travel arrangements and doing research projects. As a Personal Assistant I managed the team and kept things running in the office. I touch type 60 words per minute and I am very comfortable working with computers. I have trascribed videos and audio files. I enjoy writing and this passion has helped me to write many articles on a variety of topics in both English and French. I know the value of getting work done quickly and accurately. I am good at leading others to accomplish that same goal.  less
