Service Description

For more than 20 years, I have continuously produced quality documentation in situations where a quick turnaround was needed. I have an extensive background in editing, everything from copyediting to substantive editing. In addition:

* I have used a broad variety of authoring tools, including Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and SharePoint.
* I am comfortable with Web-based technologies (HTML, XHTML, JavaScript, CSS, XML, XSL) and authoring tools.
* I have substantial experience editing against numerous style guides (including AMA, Chicago, and MSTP).
* I have a solid understanding of publishing requirements and customer expectations for documentation, and deep experience collaborating with other teams on issues such as documentation standards, information management, and structure.
* I am skilled at integrating and satisfying multiple priorities, and thrive in a fast-paced environment.

My feedback from managers and peers has always been positive -- they were happy to work with an individual who has a professional attitude and delivers quality material, on time, in the face of challenging situations.
