Hey! You’re looking for a writer/editor and I’m looking for a new challenge. Kismet?
For ten years I’ve worked with a variety of subject-matter experts to refine messaging and craft high-
quality, targeted content. It’s my objective to use my creativity and word-geek talents to bring clarity and
style to print and online content, be it in the role of writer, line editor, or substantive editor.

My writing and editing experience includes a wide array of:
* marketing and catalog copy                          * identity collateral
* public relations materials                          * community education materials
* intranet/Web content and news stories               * grant applications
* project/instructional documentation/FAQ             * newsletters

I’ve also done a fair amount of technical writing and editing:
* process/procedures flow documentation                 * database management documentation
* technology standards/management policies              * replication and training manuals

And my skills go beyond being an expert with a red pen.
I’m adept at Web content management, with three years experience managing multiple intranet sites for
corporate department and functional groups. I’ve contributed as a team member in a major analysis and
migration of a corporate intranet site from one organizational paradigm and application to another. And
I’ve done the business analysis and project development work to launch an online resource center for a
450-member global sales team.

I’ve got project management experience too.
While working with the Mutual Partnerships Coalition, I teamed with consultants, project participants,
and staff to determine project goals, develop strategies and milestones, build relationships with collateral
organizations, and plan and facilitate conferences and working meetings.

Other project experience includes developing a contracts management system, managing project
documentation for an intranet project office, and creative pursuits like producing theatre and designing a
peer-to-peer employee recognition program for a corporate team.

And what about my technical skills?
I’ve designed and built MS Access databases, built intranet pages using MS SharePoint Portal and MS
Content Management System, can get around a bit in FrontPage, have written catalog copy in Quark
XPress, and honed gazillions of pages of content in MS Word. I’m an expert user of the entire MS Office
suite, and am tech-savvy enough to learn additional software when the job requires it.
And where have I done all this great work? Here’s the data on my employment history, education,
presentations, and volunteer service:
