    I am a talented writer and highly skilled editor for technical as well as creative endeavors. As an editor, I view each piece of writing holistically to ensure that it is not only grammatically correct but that it also serves its intended purpose. As a writer, my goal is to create documentation that fits my clients' needs and complies with their chosen style guides, whether I'm creating user or admin guides for software or hardware, online documentation, website copy, or computer-based training. I do high-quality work because I love what I do.  less

    As a grandmother of three girls aged 8, 4 and 2, I realized that mentoring the young ones is one of the hardest tasks I have undertaken in all of my 59 years on this earth. Two masteral degrees in business and public administration and an undergraduate degree in liberal arts major in English have not prepared me to answer questions from these inquisitive minds whose idea of what they want their lives to be is clearer than mine when I was their age. It didn't help that I got my own space in the house for my own desktop that is used far more often by the young ones more than me. At my age, I cannot talk of loftier career goals other than making the most of what life as a freelance writer can fetch me to keep my head above the water almost drowning in enormous medical bills to keep the Reaper away. I have simple wants but complicated needs, most of which deal with maintenance medicines or wellness programs that purport to give me better chances of seeing my grandchildren grow up and have families of their own. I am more inclined to write blogs or opinion pieces as my first writing job as an editorial assistant was to write editorials read and aired in the radio during the Martial Law years of the Marcos dictatorship. I must admit I was a paid hack and part of the propaganda machine of the unlamented New Society peddled by the Marcos regime as the best alternative for our country then. It was a presidential-parliamentary form of government, in my opinion which had the Prime Minister heading a rubber stamp of a legislature that did as the late dictator bidded. Being young then, I woke up one day realizing that working in a repressed environment would be the bane of my youth, so I took up employment in an airline that, unfortunately, went belly up as soon as Marcos started controlling its owners and eventually sequestered its assets. Basically, my forte centered more on research-oriented technical papers, making executive summaries for project studies both for private and goverment entities. As a consultant for techinical funding affairs of a local government unit that got most of its projects funded by foreign donors, I considered social responsibility of the companies taking up government contracts as the paramount concern for sustainability in developmental efforts of local governments. As a prominent contributor to crafting the budget execution and tracking system (BEATS) for a city well-known for its environmental preservation and conservation efforts, I realized that I owe it to the next generation to write more about what a sustainable development can do for an environment and its inhabitants. As a self-assured purveyor of creative visualization as the key to one's happiness, I believe that a person can only be as happy as what he visualizes himself to be and not as what others believe he can be. Growing up in a conservative family but raised with liberal ideas in an institution with academic freedom afforded me an education that is both ecletic and well-rounded. Half of my life span has been wrought by a number of upheavals in several fronts - economic dislocation, health concerns, working full-time while maintaining a scholarship and joining government while it was in transition from a democratic to authoritative rule - all these molded my thinking into a motley of tenets, the core of which is being true to oneself and one's hard-earned reputation as an upright person.  less

    My first employer was the US Coast Guard as a Damage Controlman. This entailed plumbing, carpentry, shipboard firefighting, chemical biological warfare and environmental protection. My job had me out in the field but I also did a lot of record keeping and imputing data into the computer. For the last 6 years I have worked for a company called PK Safety Supply. I wore many hats and did many jobs. I was customer service which entailed answering phone calls, order impute, estimates, researching for customer applications, walk-ins. I also learned the accounting aspect as far as billing customers and imputing invoices from vendors. I learned the shipping and receiving so I could receive shipments and ship orders out. I also helped with the 3 web sites that PK Safety had. I added item description, updated prices, added new item pages with the pictures, prices, detailed descriptions and any file or instruction manual relevant to the item. Last but not least I was also the gas monitor repair technician for the company. I repaired gas monitors that came in. I replaced pumps, sensors, batteries, and screens and calibrated the instruments.  less
