I have been employed as an independent contractor for more than six years in the medico-legal field. My work has included writing conclusions to neuropsychological assessments for clinical psychologists, amongst others, as well as proofreading the work of other writers in these practices. I have also, upon request, delivered training to newly employed proofreaders and writers.
My background is one of Social Work at a community level which included training and report writing. This was followed by a private natural health care practice with a primary focus on Therapeutic Reflexology. My involvement included membership and chairing of the local branch, on a voluntary basis outside of managing a practice, as well as looking after the Public Relations portfolio at a national level. I thus have an Honours degree and a diploma. My work has always required ongoing communication with clients, various authorities and the public.
