I have a B.A. in English and taught English at secondary school for four years in Auckland, New Zealand, followed by two years teaching English as a second language. My relevant work experience includes copy editing for Elsevier Science Publishers, the International Journal of Wellbeing, the New Zealand Blind Foundation, and the Aegis Trust. I have been transcribing for over 18 years, most recently with DTI Global. I have edited newsletters for several organizations. I am the secretary of an Auckland heritage and environmental group, for which I write numerous submissions, mostly to the local council, and the secretary for group of volunteers who provide services to homeless people. My training in technical writing focused on the editing of manuals, considering how to present information with clarity and succinctness.
