    *** Please click multiple times the "More" button under Work History and Feedback at the bottom of this page to see my five-star ratings and reviews from dozens of clients. *** *** Note: I now accept only Hourly (time tracked) jobs with a Pay Rate of $25.00 or more. If you are interviewing me personally about a Fixed-Price job, please switch it to Hourly and set the Pay Rate to at least $25.00 if you want me to consider it. If I am hired, I promise to track my time until I have logged enough hours to meet our agreed-upon total price. Thank you. **** I can help you if you are someone who needs: - Personal notes transcribed. - One-on-one interviews transcribed. - Help with editing any written communication. - Poems, song lyrics, or speeches written. - A better online dating profile. - Help with filling out spreadsheets. - Copy for your website or smartphone app. - Anything written in the English language. I graduated from Randolph College (formerly Randolph-Macon Woman's College), a well respected private liberal arts college, where I majored in English. Although the college experience contributed to my growth as a writer, I have always had an intuitive sense of what is right and wrong in English writing. I am a top-notch editor. I have a keen eye for detail and truly care about my work. Since 2007, I have worked as a transcriptionist -- that is, someone who types the spoken word. I have experience with the myriad accents and speaking styles of North Americans, South Americans, Europeans, Asians, Africans, and Australians -- yes, that's every continent except Antarctica. I have transcribed interviews related to law, international business, market research, sociology, sports, and Search Engine Optimization -- to name just a few. Many of my clients have stuck with me for years -- contacting me whenever they need work done. They trust me. Check out their praise in my oDesk reviews. If you are a full- or part-time professor at a four-year or community college, I strongly urge you to contact me to establish a long-term working relationship. If you are a student, I would also love to hear from you. I have been editing professionally since 2009, doing everything from proofreading for urgent business projects to complete rewriting of memoirs and novels. I can tackle any project, large or small. I am honored to have transcribed an anti-violence conference that was sent to U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden. I also love helping people find love through dating websites such as Match.com. I will write you a sparkling, enticing profile based on the information you provide. For that work, I have gotten praise like, "I am without words because what you have here is something that can make me shine from here to Timbuktu and beyond." Except for the most complex assignments, my turnaround time for any project is usually no more than 72 hours, and usually closer to 48 hours. *** Please click multiple times the "More" button under Work History and Feedback at the bottom of this page to see my five-star ratings and reviews from dozens of clients. ***  less
