Service Description

I can research your topic, write about it and edit it. I am great at editing and re-writing. Will give you professonal and timely feedback and return writing.

I am a grant specialist and do extensive research on communities, events, venues, and all law enforcement and fire departments across the United States to find the best funding available. I also research state procurement contracts.

Have taught and am still involved in teaching English and creative writiing. I teach students the proper way to use APA writing formats and am also familiar with other types of writiing styles. Many of my students have gone on to write for newspapers and magazines and one is actually getting an English degree.

Am also involved in youth groups and teaching scouting skills. Love to work with youth groups and help them advance.

I am also a peer review for grant departments. My credentials include YSSA, JAG (Justice Department), and FEMA. I am currently writing COPS grants for sheriff and police departments and will help them submit and track their grant packages. In addition to federal government grants, I am writing a National Science Foundation grant in conjunction with a research and development company to find new software for security departments.

My background designates that I do quite a bit of internet, library, and interviewing research.
