Writing, Editing, Event Planning Services!

typewriterDo you need something written?

Do you have some writing that could use some editing or proofreading?

Do you have an event to plan and don’t know where to start?

Let me help you! I have dozens of years of writing and editing experience. I  accept small jobs such as resumes or press releases to lengthy research articles or even books.  I am especially skilled in scientific and technical writing. I can also help you craft social media posts, develop strategic communications plans, and advise you on how to get the most out of social media platforms. I can even help with event planning, everything from finding the venue to assisting you with locating permits and vendors.  Every job is different. Let me customize a package for you.
