    My career path over the last 23 years led me from journalism at a major metropolitan newspaper to legal investigations where I utilized my extensive research skills to assist others. My interests lie particularly in subject matter that is out of my realm of immediate knowledge, as this keeps my research skills sharp and provides the mental challenges needed to keep the workplace challenging and interesting. Over the last seven years, I have worked as a investigator/paralegal for environmental lawyers and at a non profit human rights firm. My talent lies in helping others get their unique points across through the written word, whether it is website copy, a brochure or a press release. I have a knack for simplifying complex subjects for the ease of the reader, and when I don't understand something, I will research it until I do. I am available for projects large and small, including those that involve any type of writing, editing, and research based projects. Additionally, my experience includes database creation and maintenance, excellent written and verbal communications, Internet research and proficiency with most office software including MS Word, Excel, Summation, Needles, Lexis Nexis, and other research tools.  less

    After 15 years as a newspaper reporter, I want to put my research, writing and editing skills to work for my own benefit. I have extensive background in government, public finance and history along with the ability to spin a great feature story. I can write clear, concise copy on deadline. If you already have written it, I can both proofread and edit your writing. (They are different skillsets and not everyone can do both.) I also can teach you how to be a better writer. As far as research, I don't know everything but I do know where to find everything beyond just mass data scraping. I won a research award long before the Internet. I also can take all that information and condense to something the average reader can understand.  less
