Overview

"Too good to be true", "Exceeded expectations at every opportunity", and "Fabulous as usual. Cathy is the most reliable writer I have ever found" are some of the things that recent clients have said about me. I'm an educated soccer mom who was unsatisfied with subdivision life in the United States, so I listened to my heart and moved the family to the Andes in Argentina and am now loving life! I am looking for online work to be able to keep the dream alive. Let's talk and see how I can help you out!

(I think I realized it long ago, but just had the guts to act on it recently). Two years ago, I picked up the family and moved to Argentina, having never been there, with next to no money, and zero Spanish ability. I have found adventure and a zest for life that I have not felt in years! But the peso only goes so far when you have not been working for a while!
