Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $13

I have a university degree majoring in English and Journalism as well as a Permaculture Design Certificate. My passions are cooking, sustainable living, complementary health and books.
I can bring colour, humour and inspiration to creative writing, or pragmatism and clarity to business documents such as grant proposals, resumes and letters. I have written grant proposals that have successfully brought in millions into the NGO I ran for 15 years.
Experience of over 20 years has given me insight, intuition and common sense.
