I hold a JD and have had decades of experience as a lawyer-advocate and managing non profit organizations. In my almost 30 years as a lawyer, I have written and edited extensively, both my own work and that of those I have supervised. I have written and edited uncountable numbers of legal briefs, funding proposals, newsletters, and brochures.
My first editing experience was as articles editor for the Kentucky Law Journal, in 1975-1976. Prior to law school, I excelled in a journalism writing course and was recognized by Sigma Delta Chi for an investigative piece I wrote that resulted in an NCAA investigation of the University of Kentucky Football team. I have never stopped writing or editing since. I thoroughly enjoy it.
Most recently, I have edited a complex political treatise based on Guatemalan law and policy; a scientific journal piece on diabetes treatment protocols; the annual report of a nonprofit organization; and a number of funding proposals and reports. I was also the principal author and editor of a proposal to the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Environment Programme and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature on behalf of Grupo Fenix, a Nicaraguan development initiative, which won the worldwide SEED initiative.
