    Canadian writer abroad: web content and more.

    Israel - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 33

    You're looking for writing that gets the point across - clear, entertaining, and maybe even SEO-friendly; you'd probably love to make it to the top in an incredibly competitive online world. I can do that for you. As a Canadian writer living abroad, I've written professionally both online and for print on topics ranging from computer security to medicine and science to parenting and spirituality. You name it, I've written it - and if you check my client reviews here, you'll see that I'm doing it unbelievably well! You'll probably get proposals with a lower bottom line. There's lots of competition here, I'm afraid. But I doubt you'll find many native-English writers out there who can do what I do for the same price. And none will bring the same professionalism and team spirit as I can to your website, publication or blog. If you're not sure what I can do for you - just ask!

    United States - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 3

    I am a registered nurse who is proficient in the English language as well as in Tagalog (Filipino). I have extensive clinical experience in various units in both acute care hospitals and long-term care facilities. As part of my clinical rotations, I have spent hundreds of hours in the Telemetry unit, the Medical-Surgical Unit, Labor and Delivery, Pediatrics, and more, which diversify my knowledge of the medical field. For each corresponding unit, I have written research papers, evidence-based presentations, individualized patient care plans, and case studies. My high quality work is derived from my experiences in writing and proofreading these projects. Aside from being a proficient medical writer, I am also experienced in both formal and informal translations of documents from Tagalog to English and vice versa, so whether the project is about transcribing, translating, or both, I provide customers with the assurance that my work is in as excellent a form as I possibly can.
