Experience

Summary

I spent 3 years as a project manager/implementer at the industry leader in electronic medical record software. I then went freelance, blending my background/passion as a writer and my industry experience as a project manager. I am for hire in both areas.

Work history

Resume Writer and Project Manager
I craft resumes, LinkedIn profiles, professional bios, cover letters, and other documents of personal branding for clients in numerous industries. I also manage other writers at PD, ensuring customer satisfaction and adherence to deadlines.
Itinerary writer
I write targeted, custom travel itineraries, including local restaurant recommendations, fun neighborhoods to explore, and off-the-beaten-path activities.
Project Manager/Implementation Consultant
I managed complex, 1-2 year EMR implementations - setting deadlines, managing teams of 5-8, devising system solutions, collaborating with end users, and communicating across app teams/roles. I improved internal processes, taught classes, and recruited.

What I read

I read contemporary and classical fiction, interspersed with nonfiction books on professional development. I curate my Twitter feed with authoritative sources on current events, music, tech, travel, politics, religion, etc. I thrive on being well-rounded.

Side projects

I am working on a side business that creates memory-preserving stories, packaged together with photos in print- and e-books, for people seeking unique mementos of their travel and for couples getting married.

Ideal team

I prefer small teams where everyone is encouraged to offer input and with minimal bureaucratic red tape. Open-minded and flexible clients who are willing to look at problems and challenges from multiple perspectives are ideal.
