I can type proficiently, with a typing speed of about 140 wpm. I am even quicker with numerics and I always double check my work. I can guarantee you 100% accuracy in a quick turnaround time. I have experience inputting data into Excel for tables consisting of up to 1000 values in less than 30 minutes (in the form xx.xx) and verified my work to ensure 100% accuracy

This encompassed listening to audio interviews with clients and doing background research to prepare a report on scientific developments made. I work quickly and do not exceed four hours for these technical reports. I also have written countless test protocols for equipment and processes in the pharmaceutical industry as well as their respective reports (approximately anywhere from 50-150 pages).
