Service Description

A few personal notes:
* I only like to do things that I do well. (You can see a list of some things I am good at below.) I will only bid on a project when I know I can complete it on time and with a high level of quality.
* I am not embarrassed to admit I am a perfectionist. If I were hiring someone, I would want that person to strive for perfection too.
* I am critical of customer service. As a perfectionist, you will always receive timely communication and excellent results.
* My mother and I are the most honest people I know. I will accurately record the time I spend working on your project because I like to sleep peacefully at night.

Areas of Interest and Skill:

Plain Language
If your employees and members of your Executive Team struggle to make sense of your operational policies and procedures, I can help. I will translate technical jargon and convoluted sentences to simple, plain language so your message is clear within your organization and to your clients.

Government materials are often riddled with big words and circular references. I can help you understand what you need to know and work with you to ensure your materials satisfy the law of the land.

Style Guides
A style guide is a worthwhile tool to help you ensure all documentation from your organization is presented in a unified and professional manner.
Scenario 1:
You already have a style guide but it is not consistently applied by your employees. I will reformat your...
