My Story

A lifetime surrounded by words.

My Background

> I have loved books and words my entire life and graduated from Calvin College with a B.A. degree in English and Literature.

>Most of my career was spent as the Office Manager/Treasurer of our family mechanical contracting firm. My writing skills transferred well into marketing projects, business correspondence and writing the text for our website. 

> My writing won First Place in a  National Communications Contest for the Construction Financial 
Management Association.

> I know the construction industry 
(for example, terms and issues).


Proofreading/Writing Experience

> I have helped friends for years by proofreading various projects they have written.

> I have experience proofreading fiction, non-fiction, newsletters, high school and college papers, and scripts for a  murder mystery theater company (see Testimonial Page).  

> I also write short fiction stories and poetry.  I self-published my first poetry book "Waking Hearts" and was awarded Second Place for one of the poems in the 2016 Dyer-Ives Poetry Competition (Kent County, Michigan).

> I have been the Editor of monthly or quarterly business organization newsletters and my church newsletter for decades.
