Service Description

Clear. Concise. Effective. My reputation precedes me as a writer/ editor which reduces jargon and promotes clarity in your message as well as well regulated grammar rules. Although I always strive to meet your dead line, I concentrate more on quality.

There are a couple of advantages I wish to point out. I understand that you need to make a living and I am only beginning my freelance business, therefor, I will offer you a very competitive rate. The other advantage is my convenient location. I am located in the heart of the Nation's Capital where I have access to resources centers, clients, and subject matter experts.

I provide an honest service and serve with integrity.
