    Business Builder | Management Consultant

    United Kingdom - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3

    As an On Purpose Associate I worked with social enterprises to provide them with the support they need to scale their operations. As an Associate within the office of the Chief Executive Officer of the Royal Voluntary Service I worked to support and define major strategic initiatives within the organization. At Big Society Capital, I worked to advance the social investment ecosystem in the UK and investigated investment opportunities as well as their social impact. At the Institute for Competitiveness & Prosperity I worked in a highly integrated team environment on cross-functional projects that included extensive quantitative and qualitative analysis and research as well as coordinating projects across third parties including government, editors and designers to publish the Institute's reports and working papers. In that environment I strengthened my quantitative and analytical skills and gained necessary communication, public speaking and project management skills. Prior to the Institute I spent one year at the Bank of Montreal as a Financial Services Manager. During that time I gained valuable experience in client management and in sales.

    Theology/Philosophy and Sermon Writer

    United States - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    With seven years pastoral experience, a M.Div. and having earned a Ph.D. in systematic theology I am well accustomed to academic writing, particularly in the field of theology and philosophy. With pastoral experience, sermon writing has always been one of my great loves. For a powerful, persuasive sermon with insightful exegesis and theological insight to back it up, hire me! If you need help putting together a theological journal article, and have your overall argument prepared, I can bring it to life. I also enjoy fiction writing--I probably spend most of my "free time" writing stories (fantasy genre, mostly), and would be happy to write a story.

    Academic writer/ editor/ researcher/speech writer

    United States - Last active: 5 months ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    Lost for words? Do you have something to say but you just can't seem to find the right words? Let me help you with that. My love affair with the written word began when I was about 10 years old. I picked up a copy of Toni Morrison's "The Bluest Eye" from the library (my second home) and have been hooked ever since. I have a BA, MA, and PhD all in Philosophy. I am also well versed in educational theory, sociology, anthropology, political theory, and have a fondness for mythology and history. In addition to my own writing and research, I have worked as a college instructor for several years and so I am very comfortable offering feedback and editing academic papers. I have led and participated in several workshops and retreats focused on dissertation completion. I have regularly presented my research at academic conferences and have often been invited to give talks and speeches. I have received several Fellowships and recognition for my research and scholarship. While the bulk of my writing is academic, I have begun to experiment with creative writing and am presently working on a collaborative project with graphic novelist Steven Yu. I possess a great deal of experience in the non-profit sector and in higher ed administration and so know how to write project proposals with some experience writing successful grant proposals as well. I believe that writing is an incredibly important tool. We all have something to say and it is worth saying it well. In my work with students I have consistently found that, with a little bit of support and guidance, anyone can become a better writer.
