About Opal

My natural love of writing was cultivated early as Managing Editor of my high school newspaper. I went on to study Journalism as a minor in college, at Michigan State University where I received my Bachelor of Arts.

I have written professionally for many years. My credits include promotions and advertising for national retailers Dayton's, Marshall Fields and Macy's; proofreading for national print advertising; business plans for start-up businesses as a start-up consultant; course development and facilitation for INROADS national college-level corporate internship program; business writing as Contract Compliance Manager for the State of Texas.

One of the most important and most neglected elements to writing is grammar. The use of proper grammar is one of the most neglected and least respected pieces in today's literature and communications. My goals is to help bring back the love of the written word through great writing and excellent grammar.

I look forward to helping you discover the love and the power of the written word done with great grammar!
