A Little About Me as a Full Time Writer...

Years ago I had to find other forms of communication, due to a paralyzed vocal cord. Fortunately, I was able to develop and nurture my longtime passion for writing, and as a result turned it into a real skill. I have since transformed that skill into a career.

How That Will Help You...

As a full-time freelance writer I provide high quality work, free of plagiarism. My work has been in a variety of niches such as medical, food, and travel. But, I'm always open to more. The one thing you should know about me, is that I am not satisfied, until my client is.
Service Description
I use my writing skills to provide exceptional work in order to meet a client's goal, whether that is web content, articles, press releases, sales letters, or ebooks. For each project I carefully research, develop, and edit before sending anything to my client for approval.

I keep my clients informed of any progress through weekly status reports, as well as messages when necessary. I believe in keeping the communication open so there are not any concerns as to how the project is going.

Areas of Interest and Specialty:

Medical and Health
Food and Beverage
Cooking and Recipes
Travel
Beauty and Fashion
Spa
Lifestyle and Relationships

However, what I don't know or haven't written on yet, I will find out...and quickly. I will work hard to meet deadlines, but at the same time I will not sacrifice quality in meeting them.

I have high praises in writing articles, rewrites, reviews, descriptions, letters, and web content. I encourage you to give me a chance to help you with your project(s).
Employment
Freelance Writer
Writer
2010 - Present
Although I have written many projects for my own companies over the years, as well as helping friends and family members with their projects, I only recently started my official full-time career of freelance writing.
Tri County Medical Professionals
Owner/Office Manager
2008 - 2011
Tri County Medical Professionals is a private medical practice, which I co-own. I am responsible for developing written communication and media, including letters, ads, and other marketing material, as well as inputting financial information into 2 systems. I handed over the reigns to someone else, with the exception of developing ads and other various marketing material. I have a very competent staff, so I am able to free up my time to do what I love best, writing full time. My experience in this field gives me a slight edge, when writing within the topic of health.
Tranquil Health Massage Therapy
Owner
2008 - 2011
I created and developed a therapeutic massage therapy company, based along medically sound beliefs. I was responsible for creating all marketing material (ads, brochures, letters, articles), orders, managing staff, all financial matters. I believe my experience in this field gives me an edge when writing in the health and beauty niche.
Keller Williams Realty
Realtor
2001 - 2003
I enjoyed working with clients in both selling, and purchasing their home. I was on the board for that particular franchise for a year, helping the office meet its goals, and creating new policies and ideas for growth. This career put my creative, technical and customer service skills to good use. I believe that my experience in this field has helped with my writing skills as well, with creating 'sales' pages and material for homes on a daily basis, and working in the advertorial style.
Panopoulos Salons
Hair Stylist
1986 - 2001
I worked in a salon as a stylist, creating new images for my clients and learning all about the beauty world. I believe this gives me an advantage when it comes to writing in the beauty niche.
