My undergraduate degrees are in History and Political Science. Both disciplines require a great deal of research and writing. My professors often referred students to me for help in learning to write professionally and well. SInce graduating from college, I have been employed as a nonprofit director. In my chosen profession one of my greatest strengths is my ability to research and write compelling grant proposals. I have twenty years of experience in grant writing, marketing, public relations and speech writing. I am confident in my ability to tell stories and to translate an organization's mission and vision, and their clients' lives to potential donors in persuasive and powerful language.
