I am a grant writer who has suc­cess­fully helped non-profit orga­ni­za­tions to be awarded badly needed funds. I am also an award-winning writer and edi­tor who helped the largest daily news­pa­per in West­ern Mass­a­chu­setts to win  a record num­ber of jour­nal­ism awards. While craft­ing immi­gra­tion peti­tions and appeals, I have re-designed resumes and edited busi­ness plans to suc­cess­fully max­i­mize the tal­ent of clients and mar­ket their skills.
