    I am a reliable, driven and highly skilled administrative professional committed to effective execution of clearly defined, time-based goals. I am a strong and analytical writer and communicator. I hold to 'old school' values where building a client-centric culture is concerned, while embracing new technology and out-of-the-box methods as a means to that end. I am most productive where creativity is applicable to the task (drafting reports, presentations, correspondence, etc.). Place me in an environment where continual learning is the norm - I will step up. And I'll be honest: entrepreneurs are my people, so it is likely that synergy will be best met within that arena. I am an achiever.

    I specialize in both writing and editing, but in the past six months I have also been doing a small amount of tutoring for a couple clients. My background has largely been in Sales and Marketing as I was certified in 2008 in that field through college based courses. In the past few years and especially the last few months I have branched out more into this field that I love. I can help you on anything from blogging to resumes. I am personally working on my first eBook that I look to launch before the end of the year as I have put it on the side to focus more solely on my clients needs. My number one goal is to give my clients A+ work on all pieces completed, and gain a very good working relationship with them in the future. If there is ever any issues please contact me first and foremost so we can resolve it and still meet deadlines. I look forward to working with you. Nicolle
