Clients who are determined to enhance their professional profile through written communication will benefit from my services.

About My Business:

 

My talent lies in the ability to discern the heart of a communication and rework the written format to accomplish two objectives: 1. Project a professional image through written communication, and 2. Create documents that are easily understood by the recipients, including both employees and clients. This service is often underutilized because businesses fail to understand the impact of the written word. We may believe we have communicated clearly, when in reality no one else is able to understand our message. This occurs for two primary reasons. First, we develop business communications based on our personal knowledge. At first glance, this appears to be an asset. However, as we proofread our drafts, our in-depth understanding of the topic obscures how others could misunderstand what is so clear to us. Objectives go unmet because they have never been clearly communicated. The clarity of our words can often only be properly evaluated by an outside source. Second, many who are charged with developing written communications are not skilled writers. As a result, documents may lack clarity and professionalism. All written communications (protocols, policies and procedures, internal memos, client notices, or marketing packages) present an image of the company. Documents that include poor grammar, misspelled words, typographical errors, or ill-conceived sentences cause employees and potential clients to question a company's ability to represent them. With experience in the medical field (physical therapist), in management, as an administrative liaison, and as a writer and editor, I am uniquely equipped to evaluate and edit a variety of business documents and communiqués. In addition to business communications, I have also provided ghostwriting and editing services for books and other creative projects.
