Overview

My backgrounds in social anthropology, languages, travel, ranching and animal management, health food store development, Bible studies, and education have given me a broad spectrum of tappable trivia.

A love for research and a good sense of creating a meaningful structure for a written document makes writing an efficient process.

Grammatical strength and a vast vocabulary give depth to whatever style of writing employed.

A working knowledge of Arabic and French languages allows for precise translations into English.

Service Description

Currently, I live on a ranch in the beautiful Black Hills area of South Dakota where my husband and I raise commercial Hereford cattle, AQHA horses, dogs, and a few chickens.

I have written several children's stories, a few poems, and lots of expository writing.

I have developed and maintain a web site for our puppies and am in the process of developing a web marketing network for home/farm/ranch puppy breeders.

From 1972 - 1982 I lived and worked in Lebanon and Egypt. My ex-husband was Egyptian, so I was exposed to daily family life in that country. As social planner for the city planning department of Dar Al-Handasah, I edited planning reports, made demographic projections, and served as project planner for a new town in Kuwait.

I also developed and managed a 60-horse stable in Giza, Egypt and designed determined the feasibility of a three-day horseback experience from Giza to Fayoum and back.
