  • Everyone needs a little help with writing perfection -- that's why editors exist. You know what you want to say, but do you think the message can be written better? Do you just need a second look to ensure there are no egregious errors? I'm here to help! I'm a professional editor and published writer. With a master's degree in rhetoric and English, bachelors' degrees in English and communications, and academic focuses in technical writing and publishing, I can solve your writing quandaries. As an editor, I've edited tens of thousands of pages of marketing material (such as websites, press releases, memos, brochures, and proposals). With my experience and degree in rhetoric, I know how to write and edit the most persuasively. I have experience with many style guides, such as AP, Chicago, MLA, APA, and GPO. My experience also includes editing academic papers and college entrance essays for technical trades and liberal arts. I've taught at the collegiate level, so I know what instructors consider an "A" paper. I've also served on an academic entrance board to review students' applications for enrollment. I've helped most of my friends and family secure long-term careers by writing, editing, and proofreading impressive resumes, cover letters, and other career correspondence. I know exactly what managers want to see, because I've assisted hiring managers in sifting through resumes and interviewing candidates.

  • I am a senior technical writer and editor with over 20 years of experience in information technology, scientific, and medical documentation, testing, quality assurance, and proposal support and I believe that my background and abilities provide an excellent fit for the position. I am highly experienced with system software and user help documentation utilizing HTML tools, advanced web technologies, MS Word, PowerPoint, graphics drawing packages such as Visio, and management of document portals such as SharePoint. I supported a contract for a U.S. Housing and Urban Development Community Development Block Grant program where I tested and performed analysis of current system help files and created new files where appropriate according to system modifications and functionalities utilizing HTML tools. I previously supported a contract implementing the HP Service Manager 7 automated service desk product for the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation in Washington, DC. In addition to documentation and quality assurance responsibilities, I supported SM7 user training sessions and compiled participant evaluation summaries and reports. I have worked both independently and in teams in creating enterprise architecture (EA), system software, information assurance (IA), and requirements documentation following system development life cycle (SDLC), system security certification and accreditation (C&A), FISMA, NIST, Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and other mandated criteria. I worked with a team of senior computer scientists in the Office of the Chief Technology Officer at the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts in editing and updating application and preferred product information and standards for a Technical Reference Manual for publication to federal courts nationwide. I worked very closely with a small team of system architects and engineers in the development of system documentation for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in their endeavor to transform some 100-plus independent applications to an EA environment. I have also served in a quality assurance capacity and directly supported the achievement of CMM Level 2 certification as a member of a small team for an FDA government client, as well as assisting in the successful rebid and capture of a 4-plus-year FDA contract renewal via interviews and submission of core project team personnel biographies for the contract proposal. I have extensive experience in capital planning, change management, and configuration management through my involvement and experience on diverse government contracts. I have worked in additional communications areas such as health care and medical reporting and editing, including coverage of clinical trials, FDA advisory committee meetings, and new drug development and regulation. I have additionally produced corporation newsletters and correspondence and have created templates for uniformity and readability. I have excellent verbal and written communication skills working with diverse team members, subject matter experts, and management staff, and my editorial experience has provided me with a focused attention to detail and accuracy, and flexibility and sensitivity to changing needs and requirements. I am a U.S. citizen living in Merrifield, Virginia and available to begin working immediately.
