I am a Northern Virginia-based writer and editor whose career began with the first book I opened and couldnât put down, so drawn was I into its living and breathing world. I continued to read voraciously, but soon found myself drawn to editing (when I discovered an error, which drove me crazy) and writing (wanting to experience the creativity of manipulating my own language in the practice of putting pen to paper).
My career now focuses on content editing, marketing and communications, instructional material, website content, userâs manuals, nonfiction books, and technical editing and writing. For nearly 25 years I have held various positions of increasing responsibility, both as an editor/writer and a supervisor. My business track record shows superior results of improved editorial content, enhanced organization, and better teamwork â results that were achieved through my abilities to lead effectively, communicate clearly, and apply creativity.
