Service Description

I was a travel agent for 5 years before having my daughter in 2000. I started my own business in the wedding industry in 2002 and had a thriving store on eBay to coincide with my local business. I had to close down "Creative Candies" in 2005 after a life changing car crash.
I am now a trained Victim's Advocate for DUI victims and their families. I attend court cases, speak to survivors/victims, and am a public speaker/presenter twice monthly for the Spokane County DUI offender program.
I was raised in Alaska on an island and my family traveled the world on several trips a year. I enjoy cooking and interior design. I am a wife and mother of one child and 3 "furry kids" (2 cats and 1 beagle). I enjoy writing as a hobby, and hope to turn it into something further in the future.

I have DSL internet service and 2 phones, landline and cell. I pay attention to details. But everything will be approved by the client before final completion and due dates.
I pride myself in being organized and timely. I am available to work using the Pacific time zone parameters. If my times available do not work for you, we can easily negotiate the difference.
I have a desktop computer, laptop computer, scanner, digital camera, paper shredder, and a small file cabinet which I will dedicate to my Elance projects.
