Service Description

I am a nutrition educator and a certified teacher with a degree in writing and credentials from the American Dietetic Association. I began my writing and editing career as a research editor in 1986. I have more than ten years of freelance experience writing web content, newsletters, press release and lessons for elementary education. I am also an experienced researcher, editor and proofreader, and I have edited both fiction and nonfiction for professional clients and students. My technical editing experience includes adapting U.S. test reports for an international audience.

I write extensively on diet, nutrition and nutritional supplements, and I have also written lesson plans and curriculum in a variety of academic areas. My academic background enables me to conduct research in new areas with ease. I am able to write intelligently on a variety of topics in whatever voice a project requires.
