    United States - Last active: 9 days ago - Tests: 12

    For more than 15 years, I have been a writer and editor in many different capacities, from writing white papers on healthcare policy, to founding and editing a literary journal, to editing theses and dissertations for graduate students, to crafting and revising resumes. I am also an attorney, with very strong legal research and writing skills in many areas of the law. Much of my professional experience has been in healthcare policy and law, and I have an excellent grasp of medical terminology and am familiar with a broad range of health topics and issues. In addition, I write literary fiction that has been published widely. My collection of short fiction was published in June of 2014. If it's not listed, I might know it. If I don't know it, I'd love to learn it. I look forward to working with you. (Please note that my fees for legal work are higher than my posted hourly rate, which is my fee for general writing and editing.)
