Service Description

The bulk of my experience is in proposal writing, designing and developing systems to track data and generate reports, membership and prospect marketing/communications initiatives, composing news releases and other literature for community outreach purposes, and implementing various events ranging from medical awards dinners to galas to pledge walks.

The accomplishment I am most proud of is recently securing $1,000,000 for healthcare innovation initiatives through a seed capital, matching funds program hosted by the State of Louisiana. Also, in the last four positions I have held, I was the first person of the development department to be hired and was charged with developing the department’s infrastructure, while at the same time, meeting the financial goals that had been established for me.

I have worked with clients and other constituents from all walks of life and serving a variety of industries. Whether it’s high-level executives, medical professionals, or people living with a disability, I easily adapt to anyone or any situation and have a genuine desire to build a positive rapport with those involved in achieving the goals and objectives of a company or project.

My enthusiasm and passion towards my career will reflect in the product of my work and my dedication and motivation will far surpass other candidates who might be just looking for a source of income.

My past skills and experience relevant to online freelancing projects include:

• Composed, designed...
