Over the past 15 years I have developed a wide range of skills working as an independent contractor. I love to learn and because of that there are multiple jobs that I enjoy and excel at. Although I enjoy all of my jobs, I am most passionate about writing. I am fortunate to have a lot of experience in many areas, such as: Writing: SEO Content, Copy writer, Creative (bachelor's degree in Journalism), Mac Specialist, IT (tech support for AOL), Paralegal (legal asst. degree), Private Investigation (licensed), Researcher, Data Entry, Writing for ChaCha and Ask.com, Accounts Payable and Receivable, General Automotive Knowledge (1 year auto mechanics), and more. However, whatever it is that I am tasked to do I give my all. It is very important to me that I do the job to my employer's expectations; it makes them feel good which makes me feel good.
My experiences vary as I am an article writer, medical transcriptionist, general transcriber, and legal administration assistant. I have developed consistent accuracy and increased typing speed over the years in these fields, enhanced further by resourceful skills in research and creative article writing. UK or British English, which eventually evolved into the use of American English, has been my first language since childhood. I am proficient in both written and spoken English and I am acutely aware and critical of grammar, making me a perfectionist to the point of obsessive compulsion sometimes. I also aim to keep my independent contracting business running by keeping my schedule flexible enough to accommodate client needs, as well as being consistently attuned to their specific requirements so I may deliver quality projects ahead of any given deadline.
