    My experiences vary as I am an article writer, medical transcriptionist, general transcriber, and legal administration assistant. I have developed consistent accuracy and increased typing speed over the years in these fields, enhanced further by resourceful skills in research and creative article writing. UK or British English, which eventually evolved into the use of American English, has been my first language since childhood. I am proficient in both written and spoken English and I am acutely aware and critical of grammar, making me a perfectionist to the point of obsessive compulsion sometimes. I also aim to keep my independent contracting business running by keeping my schedule flexible enough to accommodate client needs, as well as being consistently attuned to their specific requirements so I may deliver quality projects ahead of any given deadline.  less
