Profile

My background is an eclectic mix of business training (MBA) enhanced by the creative thinking skills and discipline of an arts education (Classics and English). I am an excellent interviewer with a gift for "digging out the details" and presenting them in polished, interesting, readable documents—from newsletters and promotional materials to feature articles, strategic and business plans, how-to manuals, monographs, briefings, feasibility studies, biographies, and corporate reports. I have 20+ years of experience in research and communications (planning, project management, writing, and editing) for educational institutions, corporations, community-based organizations and government agencies. Use my pen to tackle your communication challenges!
