My last two nicknames were "the glue" and "the caterpillar". I'll tell you why when we talk.

The right words for...

winning new opportunities

Especially if you're a non-profit or international public organisation.

explaining or adding value

Especially if you need readers to follow instructions, or you want to cut detail and re-use content.

showing your talents

Especially if you want to impress your audience, or you want to land your next interview.

 
Excellent writing skills and massive powers of diplomacy.

She knows exactly how to write things down without complicating it.

More about me

If I can help contribute to that "ding" moment, help you land a new project or career, be the arms or legs for your next initiative, provide instructions that everyone can follow, help build a flat pack wardrobe in 20 minutes instead of 3 hours, or help avoid injury or anything more catastrophic, it will give me the greatest motivation.

You'll find that I'm a curious person, creative, quick to learn, organised, and friendly to work with. My native language is English, and I speak fairly good French and Spanish, but bad Dutch. There was a time when I could also read and write Arabic, which being left-handed I loved. Unfortunately, the grey cells have since taken over!

Some clients and former employers

foodwatch, GEOtest, Greenpeace, ICMC, IHLIA LGBT Heritage, JobnetAfrica, Oxfam, Philips, Ravebo B.V., TechTrans, Translators Without Borders, UNDP, UNOCHA, UNOPS, UN Volunteers, and many brilliant and dedicated individuals.

Places where I have lived and worked

Cyprus, France, Indonesia, Ireland, Jordan, Kenya, Kosovo, Montenegro, The Netherlands, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Sudan, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, UK, USA.

Enjoy learning

Qualifications include: Professional certification technical communication, Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) Practitioner,  Monitoring & Evaluation for NGOs, Teaching English as a Second Language (CELTA), Masters degree in Humanitarian Assistance.

Grow my own

In my spare time, I grow as many edibles as I can on my 2m2 roof terrace - tomatoes, kale, carrots, onions, salad, nasturtiums, raspberries... Imagine how much plastic packaging I've managed to save!
