Language is at the heart of what you do. Helping you use it effectively is my goal.

My services include editing and evaluating documents and offering writing training seminars and individual coaching.

I have edited or evaluated such professional and business documents as advertising copy, articles, books, brochures, corporate histories, essays for applying to medical and nursing school and for scholarships, forms, law firm marketing materials, letters, and marketing and publication plans.  I have also worked on clients’ memos, newsletters, newspaper columns, policy manuals, press kits (bios, news releases, and resumes), reports, speeches, textbooks, training materials, and translated documents.

I have edited or evaluated such literary documents as scripts for children’s movies and manuscripts for novels and short stories for children and adults, non-fiction articles, books, and essays for adults, and poetry for children and adults.  I have also worked on clients’ query letters and book proposals for editors and literary agents.

Training seminars that I have conducted in business and professional organizations have included those on writing effective letters, memos, meeting minutes, emails, and sales and marketing materials.  Another has been on writing to improve non-profit organizations.

Seminars that I have conducted for non-profit or educational organizations have included those on editing, publishing for teens, strategic planning for writers, writing book reviews for publication, writing personal essays for publication, and writing a spiritual biography.

I have also provided tutoring in English, writing, reading, the social sciences, test preparation, study skills, and other subjects.  My clients have included students in grades one through college and adults.
