Technical writing, chemistry, critical writing
Food and cooking, nutrition, motorcycling, snorkeling, and modern American history are a few of her interests.
This writer earned all A's studying calculus, chemistry, cell biology, environmental science, and technical writing full-time for twelve months. Her thesis, Non-agricultural Pesticides: History, Behavior, and Persistence OR A Primer on Consumer Pesticides, was recommended for publication by one of her professors. (Ultimately the thesis was not accepted for publication.)
This writer earned her degree with high honors, while working as a student researcher in mass spectrometry and as the instructor for the organic laboratory class for chemistry majors. Upon graduation, Carolyn H. became a chemist studying narcotic metabolites at Research Triangle Institute in North Carolina.
As a licensed Pharmacy Technician and retired bench chemist, Carolyn H. is proficient with specific chemical and pharmaceutical terminology, as well as with general scientific principles. Her expertise includes hands-on laboratory work using instrumentation, maintaining equipment, streamlining methods, managing projects, and solving problems. The continuing education required to maintain her pharmacy technician's license keeps her familiar with current trends in the pharmaceutical industry.
Throughout her career Carolyn H. has written white paper reports to explain the status of projects or to document the details of a particular work assignment. She has written for different audiences, providing appropriate levels of clarification or interpretation. In science, the act of writing often reveals errors in thinking about a project, leading researchers to re-examine previous assumptions and to propose new investigations to solve problems.
