Projects by Industry
Garden

Juanita has read numerous books and magazines on the subject of gardening, pertaining to creating of decorative borders, rose gardens, combination planting, etc., and also more practical gardening, such as organic vegetables, fruit and nut cultivars, culinary and medicinal herbs, etc. She has not only implemented these studies into her own gardening style, it has enabled her to educate others in this field as well.

Home Living

Juanita loves being home and is particularly passionate about making it a happy and safe place to be. With rising concerns over the toxins and contaminants that are lurking in common household products, she has become adept at formulating non-toxic and potent cleaners, as well as researching safe, effective personal products, how to stretch a dollar when on a tight budget, interior decorating, food preservation, self-sufficient living, etc.

Nutrition

Juanita began having health struggles over 10 years ago, and after years of exhausting the allopathic medical route, seeking for answers which it did not have (except to write prescriptions for symptoms), she turned to the ever-widening options in alternative medicine. She has been to nutritionists, iridologists, internal medicine specialists, chiropractors, naturopaths, etc. It has been through such experiences that she gained any significant help at all in her health concerns, fueling her passion for further understanding of these emerging fields of medicine.

Food

As Juanita's journey in health has led through a diversity of special diets, she, being a lover of good food, has taken the best from these diets and utilized them in creating appealing, unique dishes that do not sacrifice delicious taste in order to be "good for you." She is very familiar with the trending special foods diets and can speak and write with knowledge in these areas.

Shopping

Juanita is renowned in her circles as a deal-finder and dollar-stretcher. In our economy, it is necessary to know some of the tricks of the trade, and Juanita has made it a goal to master these. She is still learning! Included in her money-saving arsenal are "couponing" (not quite extreme), shopping sales, online purchasing, buying in bulk, etc.

Hobby

Juanita is rarely sitting with nothing to do. She is always involved in some project and usually has a to-do list that is impossibly long! She loves to crochet, sew, read, play piano, design and plant gardens (for herself and others), concoct home remedies, re-finish and paint/stain furniture, decorate both interior and exterior areas, raise chickens, preserve foods, make lacto-fermented foods, etc.

Projects By Expertise
Editor

For Juanita, grammatical and spelling accuracy is absolutely necessary. She has a hard time taking a product or advertisement seriously when there are glaring typographical errors in the presentation, so she is subconsciously editing and revising to make the ad more "marketable." She took an editing class during high school and loved it. In her occupation as ESL instructor, she frequently has opportunity to edit compositions submitted by her South Korean students, and this has been an enjoyable and satisfying part of her job.
Juanita would welcome other types of professional writing jobs which her previous experience has not included as yet.

Creative Writer

Juanita is a natural wordsmith and loves taking a topic and letting her mind -and fingers! - go wild. She tends to write more introspective, thoughtful pieces, trying to lead the reader through a maze of colorful descriptions and vocabulary to the passage end, where, with subtle progression, the reader understands the train of thought and embraces the conclusion.

Projects by Writing Style
Authoritative

When Juanita is passionate about a subject, she is able to take an authoritative tone. She loves doing research and is then able to pull from the sundry resources and deliver a well-written and logical presentation of the issue. Juanita has written a number of reviews for private individuals, particularly relating to her areas of expertise, in all of which she maintains a consistently authoritative yet respectful tone.

Conversational

Juanita naturally has an easy, conversational, personal style about her writing. She has always tried to give her reader a real glimpse into her life by painting descriptive pictures with words, utilizing quaint expressions, and generally speaking in such a way that makes the reader feel as though he is present in the room and so able to "hear" voice inflections and "see" facial expressions. She has heard from many people that she achieves this goal in writing.

Promotional

When Juanita is interested in a product, she becomes a salesperson just by default. When she studies something, she talks or writes about it. In this manner, she has convinced many people to try new products, investigate new programs, develop exercise or health regimens, etc. With a little research, Juanita can't help but be promotional.
