Service Description

I am well-versed in all MS Office applications and in InDesign, Photoshop and other Adobe applications. I have an innate love of language and abhor plagiarism. I am a collaborative, hard working life-long learner who pays close attention to deadlines, details, and to client needs. My focus as a writer and editor is to make your thoughts, ideas, and words as clear and concise as possible while working to maintain your unique voice and writing style; my ultimate goal is your utmost satisfaction with the finished product, and I will work tirelessly with you to achieve that end.

I specialize in sharpening and clarifying, in making newsletters, manuscripts, pamphlets, fliers, posters, and abstracts as sharp and cohesive, as precise, clear, and aesthetically pleasing as possible. I also excel at internet research and work comfortably in MS Office, InDesign, Photoshop and many other software applications.
