    for high-quality transcription/proofreading service

    Philippines - Last active: 18 hours ago - Tests: 18 - Portfolio: 2

    It was in 2009 when my daughter introduced me to oDesk. She, being a young fulltime mom then, realized how convenient and more rewarding it was to be able to work and at the same time be home and take care of her baby. I have, for more than 25 years, focused my energies on fulltime mothering, homeschooling and ministry myself, so I can't agree with her more. I also find oDesk as a wonderful opportunity to combine my family and ministry roles with my desire to further enhance my personal skills. My experience with oDesk thus far has been very rewarding, in terms of personal growth in knowledge and skills, and also in terms of opportunity to develop good working relationships with clients. My objective is simply to provide high-quality and dependable service. I am a diligent worker, preferring to work independently but delivering quick and timely service.
