Nicole H.

Analyst Strategist Researcher Editor Educator Ph.D.


Santa Rosa, United States


With experience in the education, non-profit and business world on and off oDesk, I offer my clients efficient and accurate output of the highest standard, saving them time and money, delivering the desired results and often surpassing their expectations. While I can take on highly specialized tasks, what sets me apart from other contractors on oDesk is my ability to approach any project with a holistic understanding of the big picture of what is required. When you hire me, you don't just get a talented writer, editor, researcher, analyst, manager, teacher or Web developer, you get someone with the flexibility ... moreto solve whatever complex challenges your project, big or small, requires. I have been a solo entrepreneur, but have also managed the preparation of a successful bid for a $400 million 20-year contract. I work with a wide range of computer software as well as human and programming languages. Originally from the U.S. with degrees from the University of California, Berkeley and the University of Chicago, my current location is in the GMT+2 timezone, although I work according to your business hours. If you like what you see below, invite me for an interview today and we can discuss how I can make whatever you are working on an outstanding success. less

    Ebook Editor
    I needed someone who could take my book draft, see the big picture and re-organize it in a way that made sense. She rewrote parts in my voice and made great corrections in a timely fashion. In one case, I made reference to the Boston marathon. Before I even heard about the news, she made a note on the book to change the reference. Awesome!

    This was my first job posting on oDesk and after a short phone interview I knew that Nicole was the right person for the job. She has a quick mind, asked intelligent questions, confirmed she understood and delivered exactly what she promised. It has been a fantastic first experience and I can highly recommend Nicole.

    Create an enticing pitch for my guest apartments
    Nicole was great to work with- she took initiative straight from the beginning, developed a logical plan of attack, kept me abreast of her progress every step of the way, and confirmed with me that her work in progress was going in the right direction. I couldn't be happier with the result. I hope to hire her again in the near future.
