Overview

Creative, thorough and on target, I am a highly skilled writer, proofreader and editor who can ensure that your message is clear. I have experience writing business presentations, sales proposals, catalog copy, brochures, website copy & more. I also do translations from Spanish into English.

Service Description

My Bachelor's degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management and my Master's in Comparative Literature make me uniquely qualified to balance your message and reach your target market, no matter who that may be.
Currently I am pursuing my Ph.D. I left publishing and I have taught for many semesters as a Professor of Composition and Literature. My extensive International travel experience has helped me to understand the need to be aware of the miscommunication that can come from cultural differences, as well as how to work with that and avoid common pitfalls.
