Overview

With over fifteen years of experience in proofing, editing, writing, and data entry of all kinds, I am ready to offer you the help you need on a variety of projects. I am an organized and focused self-starter with discipline and attention to detail. Those strengths served me well during - and were further enhanced by - my time in the U.S. Air Force, where after four years of active duty service, I received an honorable discharge.

Every project I take on, in my mind, gets stamped with my name upon completion. My work is a reflection of...

Experience and Qualifications

I hold a Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice/Homeland Security Administration, with a GPA of 4.0. Most of my time in graduate school was spent writing. Each one of my professors encouraged me to submit my papers to magazines and academic journals. They insisted all of them were worthy of being published, especially my thesis.

Since 2005, I have been serving as Vice President of the New York Corporation for International Cruise Victims, Association (ICV). One of my many duties and pleasures is acting as proofreader and editor for ICV's President and cofounder, Mr. Kendall Carver. Mr. Carver doesn't release, send, or transmit in any way anything without requesting that I peruse it first. I have proofread and edited the following items for him:

-Press releases and ICV updates that I also post to ICV's website: www.internationalcruisevictims.org

-The foreword...
