Service Description

For three years I have managed an online, self-service knowledge base of university student's frequently asked questions. Content is managed within the RightNow CRM, and I am a stickler for end user testing!

It is my responsibility to make sure that published information for students is completely accurate. There's no room for ambiguity when transforming university policies or processes into every day language!

When editing I have a knack for perceiving what the intended message is, versus what the reader 'gets', and am a natural at bridging any gaps of understanding. I have successfully turned stuffy, wordy, academic brochures for prospective students into fresh, concise and relevant prose. I will pay the same attention to your work, whether it be FAQ's for your website, a glossary, or a plain English translation of policy.

Owning a retail franchise for over eight years has provided me with a colossal amount of training collateral, particularly for young adults and teenagers. I have tailored over one hundred retail business documents including staff training, staff review programs, product manuals and staff meeting newsletters.

I can confidently deliver:
- Article writing, reviews, web content, blogs
- Staff manuals and training documentation
- Advertising copy
