Stephanie was very good at identifying specific opportunities for condensing/editing my material, as well as overall proofreading. She has an opportunity to extend her value once she gets more into the production side of things, particularly eBook formatting.

Valerie has been an outstanding worker and person since met her in 1995. Even as long ago as then she was a superb worker with attention to detail and always went the extra mile to help or get things corrected. Over the years we became friends and the excellence of her skills have only improved. Valerie is talented in so many areas that include administrative, inspirational, and writing. As I work on my doctorate she has provided editing services as well. My most recent business involvement ordering personalized books has been no less than an a superior experience. The only course is for Valerie to keep on course providing a wonderful and timely experience in all she does and I have no doubt that this is exactly what she will do.

About

Just as the eyes are the window to your soul, the written word is the image that conveys your message and your vision of who you are and what you do. My goal is to help you make the best impression possible with every document associated with you and the work you do. As a proposal specialist, I edited and did collaborative writing with engineers and merged text into proposals as well as developing related graphics. My editorial services have included attending and recording conference sessions and providing edited transcripts of the presentations and discussion sessions afterwards to the organizers for later publication in scientific journals. I have edited and formatted doctoral dissertations into APA-approved format for graduate degree candidates. I created The weekly newsletter published by a food industry trade association for distribution to its membership as well as developing databases on nutrition issues in Excel and Access for the Senior VP for Science.using the keywords contained in article synopses. I have also transcribed verbatim survey comments for marketing research and the human resource division of corporations. My clients have included McDonnell Douglas/Boeing Company, the American Beverage Association, the Alliance for Potato Research and Education, Maritz Marketing, and Opinions Inc.

About

Writing and editing are my two most enduring passions. Through my time in college and in law school, I was lucky enough to have a unique exposure to a wide variety of writing styles for several contexts. Before graduating from college as a magna cum laude, I was selected to work as a writing consultant for the school, and there, I spent 3 years helping hundreds of students at different stages and levels of writing, whether it was a graduate student finalizing a thesis on mathematics education or an international student writing a personal statement in a beginner's English course. Providing such services allowed me to truly understand what it takes to create high-quality writing and helped me to enhance my scrupulous attention to detail. I took the invaluable skills I had developed working in the writing center, and I built upon them through every step of law school. I shined as a clerk for the federal district court, where I wrote memoranda regarding habeas corpus and social security disputes. Through my research assistant fellowship under a professor, I received direct and consistent feedback while writing publishable-quality articles. As an article editor for the school's Public Law Review, I improved my precision and thoroughness while meeting intensive deadlines. Finally, as an advocate on our school's international moot court team, I not only researched and wrote a memorandum on the complexities of international legal disputes, but I also enthusiastically embraced the opportunity to review and revise the memoranda written by my teammates. Each opportunity above has enhanced my skills as a writer and editor but more importantly, they have all reaffirmed what I am passionate about. I look forward to sharing my talents with you.
