Service Description

I am a writer. My training comes from being a general assignment newspaper reporter for 16 years for small daily newspapers in my home state. Most of that time, 13 years was spent with one family owned paper and was the best job I ever had, except the pay was low.

I moved into public relations, accepting the position of Director of Public Affairs for and oil and gas industry trade association. In addition to news releases and letters to the editor, I did considerable research on economic issues, legislative matters and became the computer expert for the company. I also served as office manager supervising the bookkeeper and making sure everything got done that needed to be done.
