Visionary Freelance Writer and Editor

United States - Last active: 02/25/2013 - Tests: 2

Lustrous beads of sweat gather at her temples to take the long slide en masse over the crimson glow of her cheekbones and down the craned arch of her neck. Her grip tightens like a fleshy wrench around her husband’s wrist as she settles herself with aplomb into a deep squat against the bathroom sink. Finally, she sounds her battle cry: “The baby’s coming!” … That was my last job. After earning a BA at UC Berkeley and an MS from Columbia University I’ve spent the last five years in joyful service as a nurse midwife; now I'm making a steady transition back to writing, my first true love. I enjoy creative writing, but that’s not the whole story. I also have experience producing fresh website content, articles, brochures, and educational materials. My knowledge base lies mainly in conventional and holistic medicine, nutrition and the culinary arts; however, I take delight in researching new topics and relish a challenge. When it comes time to deploy your vision I can assist with setting up and designing custom content management systems and blogs. I have refined my practices of collaboration and precise communication during five years of working closely with doctors, nurses, administrators and patients from all walks of life. I am impeccable with my word, maintain excellent time integrity, and insist on submitting only the finest quality of work. I look forward to turning your project into a masterpiece.
