    My career path over the last 23 years led me from journalism at a major metropolitan newspaper to legal investigations where I utilized my extensive research skills to assist others. My interests lie particularly in subject matter that is out of my realm of immediate knowledge, as this keeps my research skills sharp and provides the mental challenges needed to keep the workplace challenging and interesting. Over the last seven years, I have worked as a investigator/paralegal for environmental lawyers and at a non profit human rights firm. My talent lies in helping others get their unique points across through the written word, whether it is website copy, a brochure or a press release. I have a knack for simplifying complex subjects for the ease of the reader, and when I don't understand something, I will research it until I do. I am available for projects large and small, including those that involve any type of writing, editing, and research based projects. Additionally, my experience includes database creation and maintenance, excellent written and verbal communications, Internet research and proficiency with most office software including MS Word, Excel, Summation, Needles, Lexis Nexis, and other research tools.  less
