Research/Writing Professional Writing I understand the power of the written word. Words have the ability to: * help us get our point across * influence our decisions * bring out our emotions * help us see the same things in new ways * bring people together * bring ideas to fruition * convey information * teach us new things * help us increase our circle of influence I do these things by choosing the perfect words to use for any given situation. I have a burning desire to perfect the craft. I do this by investing the time and dedicating myself to produce the best quality product. I do not believe in good enough or just getting the job done. I believe in delivering exceptional results that exceeds expectations. Research Need some information? Unable to find it? Short on time to look? Wondering where to begin? Forget about worrying! Ask me and I will find it! Is the information business related? Personal? No need for concern. I love solving the information mystery. I will do online and offline research--if the information is out there I WILL find it! Editing & Proofreading * Professional experience reviewing and compiling documents for grant proposals, website content, job descriptions, etc. *Academic experience editing and proofing individual and group documents.
