Writer and Editor
Last active: 1 month ago
I am a Canadian with excellent English language skills. I have more than 20 years professional experience in writing, editing and proofreading over a diverse range of disciplines including finance, public relations, technical, marketing, business plans, reports, website content and other projects. I have extensive experience as a newspaper volunteer, writing content, editing stories and designing layout. I have a passion for writing with an eye for detail. I produce fast, accurate and concise work. I am a voracious reader of popular fiction.
My previous careers provide a diversity of skills. My most recent experience is of an entrepreneurial nature, in which I managed a startup venture. I researched, organized, determined corporate structure, designed blueprints and obtained funding. Success in this project required attention to detail, identifying risks, problem solving ability and a high level of organization. I am currently establishing avenues of business development for this venture.
My first career was in the Air Force during which I managed people and resources, and instructed. I learned to manage institutional expectations and how to manage communication between my staff and third parties. I then became a very successful Financial Advisor, gaining experience in business development and customer care. My advantages are strong interpersonal, communication, problem solving and decision making skills, the ability to establish and maintain strong alliances, lead and motivate teams, drive projects to successful completion and achieve expected results. As a management professional I understand the need for clear, concise communication, be it written or verbal.
