I can help express your thoughts in a style comfortable for you, in language that will make sense and appeal to your reader. I'm a former attorney and skilled copy editor with more than 20 years of experience writing and editing letters, resumes, business documents. I can definitely help you.

I have a reputation as a relentless editor and proofreader, with a talent for composing and polishing resumes, correspondence, online profiles, and related materials. I produce clear, intelligent material that will be appealing to your reader, demonstrating your skills and achievements in your own voice. We’ll choose language and sentence structure that is comfortable for you. We’ll analyze every word and phrase to make sure an intended reader will understand who you are.

Since 1990 I have been in the business of composing resumes and letters for a range of clients, including doctors, nurses, teachers, lawyers, architects, accountants, artists, bankers, rocket scientists (no kidding), recent graduates, and parents reentering the work force.

I’m one of those people who sometimes find it hard to concentrate on publications because I'm always editing in my head. I have also been known to stealth-edit whiteboards and blackboards.

Please take a look at my writing samples so you can get a feel for my accessible writing style. To preserve confidentiality, I cannot post clients' resumes, but I have posted mine so you can get an idea of how yours might look. Nothing is set in stone, though; your piece will be structured in whatever way you feel is most effective.
