I have several years experience as a professional writer and editor writing blogs and articles for businesses. I also write grants and edit books, and teach business writing.

Most of my professional life was spent working in museums and cultural sites- actually working in history! I started working as a Park Ranger and have worked at both History and Art Museums. I love interpreting complex ideas for people and putting them into an historical context.

I have a degree in Anthropology and have spent summer on archaeological digs. I have also traveled extensively and have toured many of the great European museums. My most recent employer was a Native American tribe, where I worked with tribal elders- including trying to learn the language.

I minored in English and have worked for several years as a writing professional. I write blogs, articles, websites, and other materials for businesses. I also write federal, state and foundation grants. I teach business writing, including persuasive writing
and writing for an audience.

I have a BA in history,specializing in American History. I spent most of my professional life as a Museum Director/Curator of several history museums throughout the U.S. This meant I researched and wrote labels, brochures, and other materials for each exhibit and installation. I also taught adult classes, formed an archaeological club that held a dig in the garden of the Oldest House in St. Augustine, FL. I have tutored students for citizenship tests in Florida and Texas.

I enjoy helping people learn! Learning to write clearly and simply is important- and not all that difficult. As for history-I think some people hate it because of the way it is usually taught. It can (and should) be interesting. It's about people.
