I worked as a consultant and trainer for many years, developing curricula, manuals and trainee materials, as well as providing hands-on training. I now work as a writer and editor, bringing excellent knowledge of training principles and techniques, business concepts, communication skills, psychology, and learning styles. My areas of speciality are mental health, human development, small business, medicine, and education. As an editor and writer, I attend well to detail, employ excellent listening and organizing skills, work efficiently, and have a good ear for language. My background in mental health, education, and training augments my writing and editing capabilities, as does my curiosity about many topics and my life experience in varied work settings. My work style is collaborative, respectful, and friendly.
