Summary of Experience
Her primary occupation currently involves working as a courier, delivering a variety of packages to clients on an as needed basis. But she has had previous experience working as an Office Assistant for a financial planner and a lawyer. The position at the financial planner included writing and editing a manual for office procedures that was used by my successors. Spent nine and a half years working for two health insurance companies opening and sorting claims and other correspondence. She has also held 3 library positions, where she cataloged materials, worked at a reference desk, and provided assistance at the check out desk. Her most interesting library experience was working for a library run by the Oneida Tribe of Indians, where she assisted in the cataloging of their extensive collection of books on the Oneida Indians.

Most interesting online work was typing menus for an online restaurant information service. Typed menus for restaurants, banquet facilities, and caterers. Frequently had to proofread and edit the information she was given as she typed it in order to make the menus more readable. Also had to verify prices and other information in order to create a final product that made the restaurant look good.
Her specialties, which she feels would serve her well on an online writing service are typing (55 wpm), data entry (+100 kpm, proof reading (she is quick to spot errors in newspaper articles), a good eye for detail, and good organizational skills.
Her favorite pastimes are travelling--especially around her state, scenic photography of the places she travels to, Bible study, history, genealogy, cooking when she gets a chance, and games--particularly of the Trivial Pursuit variety.

Projects by Industry

During her tenure at the office of a financial planner, she was responsible for re-organizing the files of the financial planner. The files needed to be completely gone through in order to meet the industry requirements for compliance. Once the files were organized and an audit by an industry person confirmed the files met with compliance standards, she compiled an office manual that gave instructions on how the individual files were to be organized, how the files were to be grouped in the filing cabinets, as well as other duties pertaining to the position of office manager for the financial planner.

Projects by Company Size
Small Business

Typing menus for an online restaurant company was an interesting endeavor. The menus were faxed to the typist's home, where the typist had the responsibility of typing the menus into Word format so they could be placed online. The online restaurant service, called provided information on restaurants throughout the state of Wisconsin. Information included name of restaurant, location, type of cuisine and the menu. Typing the menus often meant proofreading and editing on the fly as many menus contained spelling, grammatical, and even pricing errors. These were corrected on the fly so that the menu would present the best picture for the restaurant that would be posting it online.
