    I specialize in writing and designing high-quality, documentation, such as magazine articles, blogs, user guides, training materials, etc. I also have experience at a publishing company as a project manager, where I coordinate the authors of anthologies to get the book published on time. As an innovative and adaptable communication specialist, I am proficient in writing, desktop publishing, and project management. At the end of 2012, I decided to begin a career as a consultant. In this role, I bring unique perspectives to my clients because of my wide range of experience—mainly, developing all of the components necessary to publish, in addition to writing—and my ability to work as a key team member to get results. In October 2014, I became an author in the best-selling anthology "Manifesting in High Heels." In a previous job, as a member of the technical writing team at Abbott Molecular, I managed many types of documentation projects, mainly operations manuals for diagnostic instrumentation. My responsibilities included completing these documents for product launches. In order meet my deadlines, I collaborated with team leaders to set realistic expectations; acquired information from a variety of sources, including software developers, engineers and scientists; and designed the manuals to meet company standards.

Working with quality, regulatory, marketing, safety and other functional areas ensured that all criteria were met prior to the publication of the documents.

    Writer-Editor-Application Specialist

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 10

    Do you have a book in your head and need somebody to write it down? Do you have a book on paper and need someone to polish it, tighten it up, shape it, make it sing? Are you a merchant with a continuous stream of copy that absolutely has to be bright and error-free? As a copy editor, I write and proofread copy with the precision of a computer programmer or an accountant, in both of which fields I’ve had considerable experience. Nothing gets by me. That’s only the beginning. In my 20-year career as non-profit program manager and back-office polymath, I’ve edited minutes and articles, written successful grants and sales letters, technical documentation, user guides, and financial reports, and designed newsletters and all manner of public relations and promotional materials. In 2009, I retired from the office of a small non-profit adult care community after ten years building the organization’s community support base, level of fundraising, technical and financial infrastructure, and public relations professionalism. My appeal letters increased every year and ultimately doubled the yield of L’Arche Nehalem Community’s Annual Appeal. Since then, I’ve been writing books, building a writing portfolio, as well as pursuing some creative ventures in other fields. My book of anecdotes, The Depressed Guy’s Book of Wisdom, is published by Chipmunka Publishers, London. I’ve been doing a weekly column on writing as the Sunday Editor of Gather.com’s Writing system portal. I’ve done a huge variety of creative writing during these three years, including non-fiction, stories, poetry, and a full-length young adult novel. I would love to talk to you about your project or opportunity. I know I can be an enormous help to your endeavors.
