Welcome to my Visual CV! I have several talents to share with clients.
Career Coach: I am a career coach who offers multiple affordable career services, including individual coaching, career transitions groups, and college planning support. I also teach career-related courses at Portland-area community colleges. My clients and students describe me as organized, clear, knowledgeable, effective and compassionate. I am delighted to work with all types of clients, and have specialized skills to work with women, people of color, and older workers.
Writer: I'm also a writer. As a former attorney, social worker and grant writer, I have lots of experience with non-fiction and technical types of writing, including reports, briefs, and grants. I studied and practiced newspaper journalism in the early l990s and have published numerous newspaper news and feature stories, including in the Oregonian. I am currently writing a novel and editing a book of short stories, all set in India, where I grew up. I will be in South India, from July-December 2012 and will be blogging about my experiences teaching social work to young Indian women in the ancient Hindu city of Madurai.
