Service Description

Currently employed as a Legislative Research Assistant, my writing career spans more than 20 years. Qualifications include: meeting tight deadlines, with accurate and concise copy, as a former newspaper reporter; writing web content; marketing and public relations experience; technical writing; editing; and proofreading.

I earned a Bachelors degree in English/Journalism from Tougaloo College in Mississippi, a Masters degree in Information Studies and another Masters degree in Educational Psychology, both from Florida State University.

Writing is my passion. Grammatical and spelling errors, on the other hand, are my pet peeves. Unconsciously, I proof EVERYTHING, and visualize potential improvements. No detail is too minute, and I seek to ensure each client's satisfaction. In short, I want to work for you.
