About Your Writing/Copy-editing Partner
Freelance Proposal Writer, CV Writer, Copy-editor
I love the excitement of new journeys, don't you? When working with UN agencies and NGOs (e.g. UNDP, UNOPS, Oxfam, Greenpeace) for around 15 years, I enjoyed drafting and crafting the documents that helped launch initiatives, create change, facilitate decisions and record progress. If I can be the arms or legs for your new journey, I'll be in my element!
You'll find that I'm a curious person, quick to learn, organised and friendly to work with. My native language is English (UK), I speak fairly good French and Spanish, and I'm still working on my 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!
From living, studying and working in 19 countries. I know what it’s like to operate in the wealthiest and poorest places, the largest and tiniest organisations, and the fanciest and simplest offices. These experiences have made me open-minded, respectful and able to appreciate different perspectives.
Practising permaculture is becoming more important in my life. Check out my infographics on edible flowers and companion planting. In my spare time, I grow as many edibles as I can on my small roof terrace - tomatoes, kale, carrots, onions, salad, nasturtiums, raspberries. Imagine how much plastic packaging I've managed to save!
I work from my home office in the Netherlands and am available to work remotely using Skype, phone, email or video-conferencing software. If you need help with a writing project, get in touch to find out how I can help you.
