    I have a wealth of experience from over forty years of service to industry, community organizations, and churches. Due to my spouse's declining health, I now work from home. My strengths are Writing, Editing, Spreadsheets (Excel, Lotus, Quatro Pro, etc.), and Technical Detail Work. I make extensive use of spreadsheets, developing special templates as needed to facilitate various operations. I've also assisted in the development of a manufacturing facility's ISO 9001 program and related documentation. I have, for example, produced extensive ISO related Quality Control and Production "Process Sheets" and "Job Travelers", which serve to direct the actual processes of production. In spite of all that technical detail, my preference is to work on tasks which assist and/or promote Christian Churches, Schools, and Service Organizations. I look forward to using my skills for the mutual benefit of your organization and my family!
