|Highlights:||For 24 years I have been responsible for final document quality for consulting, law, and marketing firms whose primary saleable products are the documents they develop. My experience and natural aptitude have earned me recognition as a gifted writer, editor, and proofreader, whether the assignment required technical, persuasive, or creative writing.
--Serving as the technical writer for the first application ever approved by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality for the beneficial use of an industrial by-product. Successfully obtaining approval of these documents resulted in benefits to the environment and significant monetary benefits to the client, their customers, and my employer.
--Composing essays demonstrating that our clients had sufficiently evaluated whether the economic stimuli provided by proposed projects both outweighed and minimized environmental impact. The approval or rejection of these projects affected countless jobs within surrounding communities, impacted tens of thousands to millions of dollars at stake for the client, and played a significant role in maintaining my employers’ reputations.
--Authoring a complete, easy-to-use guide for parents on how children learn and develop intellectually during the first two years of life. The 208-page book and associated calendar presented the latest information available by compiling the research findings of early childhood development experts as published in respected professional journals.
|Work terms:||Payment Method:
Guru.com is new to me, so at this time I will follow their admonition to transact payments through SafePay Escrow, which they claim better ensures both your and my protection and satisfaction should disputes arise. If you have believe we may be better served by the use of some other method, feel free to let me know, and I will be happy to consider your alternative. I will accept payment by Check, E-check, or Wire Transfer Funds, as well as Credit Card and PayPal payments. However, it is my understanding that the first three options earn you Loyalty Dollars.
Please feel free to contact me by telephone or e-mail as often as will make you feel comfortable and confident in the work meeting your needs. I will generally be available from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday.
