My name is Cynthia, an MBA graduate from the Schulich School of Business (Toronto, Canada). Earlier this I successfully obtained my Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. I have over eight years of research experience – doing both qualitative and quantitative research in the healthcare and marketing field. Professionally, my expertise lies in the health industry. I worked as an independent consultant, liaising with distinguished physicians and scientists to develop business plans and to provide actionable recommendations. Currently, I am a business analyst working in the healthcare and IT industry. My previous roles include e-marketing and research in the real estate sector. Although I am new to oDesk, I am no stranger to working independently and without little supervision. I am mainly interested in applying for jobs that require research, consulting and business plan writing. Nevertheless, if something piques me interest, I will definitely apply as well! My personal motto is “never stop learning.” I carry this philosophy in all aspects of life – especially in my career. While I am passionate about the healthcare sector, I am always curious to learn more about other industries. Outside of work, I am an automobile aficionado, and have a keen interest in physical fitness, cooking and nutrition. I would love to leverage these interests into a job from oDesk!

I was certified in 2008 for Hospitality Sales and Marketing while Maintaining a 4.0 GPA. To obtain that certification I had to write multiple Business Plans and Propositions. I also in 2007 had my first poem published on www.Poetry.com and received The Crystal Award for that piece that same year. In the years since I have been finessing my writing and editing skills in my personal time for Friends and Family while working other jobs. My first novel is currently set to be completed by May 2015. Being a full time writer has always been a dream and goal of mine. I have personally always done my own editing on my pieces because I am truly my own hardest critic and I have succeeded with that view point and desire for excellence. I give that kind of dedication to everything I do and look forward to working with you on any task you have at hand to be completed and perfected. 4/19/2015 To All Future and Current Clients: I am currently in the midst of a dispute with a Client due to issues with receiving a piece I had completed due to issues that were experienced with Odesk with the submission process. I want to ask that if you have problems receiving a project please inform me so that we can resolve this issue instead of hastily ending the contract as it will effect both of our standings on Odesk in the future. I highly respect my Clients and want them to be thoroughly happy not only with the work I do but also the time frame it is done in. Communication is key in the Freelance world so please always keep that in mind not only with me but with other Freelancers in the future.-N.S.
I have been writing since my first memory of life. In my years of teaching abroad, I have developed a love of translation as well as editing to ensure good communication is maintained and expressed correctly. Translation projects include manuals on alternative healing for "el Centro Holistico de Gaia" in Costa Rica. I have an eye for anything out of place and my strongest ability is to improve on how words are used for maximum effect and understanding.
I have a very good understanding of project management and development programs culled from more than ten (10) years of progressive professional experience in this field. I had several engagements with different international non-profit organizations through grant development and management for various aid agencies (USAID, AUSAID, CIDA, JICA). I have successfully completed small and large grants (one time and multi-year) in funded grant applications in the different intervention areas of health (HIV, TB, Child Survival), disaster response and management, education and social justice. I also work with state and local agencies, private foundations, corporations, and other non-government organizations to source grant funding for my clients. ________________________________________ I offer the following services: Grant Writing, Prospecting & Fundraising Consultations Grant Oversight and Reporting Government, Foundation, and Corporate Grants & Requirement Analysis Development Portfolio Management Resource Generation Program Development Sustainability & Strategic Planning Contract Management Compliance, Monitoring & Project Evaluation Needs Assessments
