United States - Last active: 18 hours ago - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 20

I was born and raised in the United States. I have recently spurred my career in graphic design. I really enjoy designing logos. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my work and meeting expectations of a design idea, I can never stop until it's the best it can be. I received my degree in IT in 2003 and haven't had the opportunity to use that degree until recently. I use Adobe Illustrator primarily to create vector logos. I also have a reputation for exhibiting a wide range of skills as an assistant, including transcription, data entry, and accounting for a small firm. My core competency lies with Microsoft based programs, as well as, Quickbooks for accounting. What makes me different from other freelances: I meet my clients expectations and deadlines. My job isn't done until they are satisfied.

Currently I am working on my MT certification and am, in the meantime, seeking other transcription online to improve those needed skills. Over my career of 34 years I have worked with a great many data formats and computer programs. I enjoy the challenge of alphanumeric data and building databases. Also, I have had a lot of experience typing books and technical manuals, and am very comfortable with formatting chapters/sections of same.
