NO NEED FOR A LOT OF HAND HOLDING

My work and life experience spans education, public relations, journalism, architecture, construction, business and marketing. Having performed in roles from intern to executive level, and in both government and the private sector, I have a deep understanding of organizations. I also have excellent communications skills and am a life-long learner

CLEAR EXPECTATIONS AND PROJECT REQUIREMENTS ARE APPRECIATED.

During the past nine years I have:
-- published more than 80 magazine articles in the trade press
-- written, edited and developed multimedia, including presentation
-- written copy for companies in the food, financial and print industries
-- written and edited more than 300 business communications items including press releases, newsletters, business sales letters, website copy and promotional pieces
-- developed content for an online software consulting group
-- 1200 blog posts and 30 podcasts
-- written how to materials for a tech company, and written a few hundred topical web pieces.

Recently I'm writing heavily in the construction sector and have done online projects for Tech Republic, IBM and Cox Communications.

I MEET THE DEADLINES.
