What distinguishes me as a writer–besides writing abilities–are my skills as a listener and collaborator. For grant writing, I almost always suggest that I facilitate a meeting with your team to better understand your program and outcomes. I’m interested in the people connected to your proposal–those carrying out the work and those you serve, as I want to clearly convey the impact you’re trying to achieve.
For all writing projects, I am a fast study, and I deliver the goods on time! I have years of experience as an educator and administrator in schools and in the community college system, which means I can navigate complexity and nuance, adeptly move between the big picture and the details, and get things done.
About 50% of my writing work is grants, with the other 50% being a variety of projects for education and small businesses.
