I am an independent writer serving small businesses, government agencies, nonprofits and faith-based initiatives through writing and editing news articles, advertorials, government technical proposal writing, grant proposals, bios, blogs, legal and medical case summaries, letters, grade-school lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations, press releases, resumes, social media content, tests/quizzes and web content.

My niches include aging issues and senior long-term and short-term care, the field of pharmacy, community health and wellness, education, federal health insurance, food and drug safety, publishing and e-publishing, small business and government contracting, substance abuse prevention and treatment and funding, youth guidance and nonprofits and funding.

Projects range from individual short-term projects that involve writing website landing pages or copy-editing or proofreading two-page resumes, reading grade-school lesson plans, doctoral dissertations, grant proposals or five-digit-page ebooks to large-scale, long-term assignments centered on evaluating audio recordings, AI exercises, data entry, e-commerce support and virtual assistance.

As a print journalist, I bring to the table years of experience in content writing and editing that began with daily newspapers, bi-weekly and monthly newsletters, wire services and online publications.

With a proficient, fluent command of U.S. native English and intermediate French, I bring competence and clarity to any endeavor.
