My specialties lie in the work that I am the most experienced in. That would be wine, technology, travel, environment and the medical field. I have not yet touched the categories that I am especially interested in that suit my particular hobbies, including the harp, issues surrounding pregnancies and challenges faced by the elderly.
Gayla G. has many interests, which flow into her writing material. As a traveler, she loves to write about the places she has been and to give tips to those who might follow. She has worked in the medical profession since she finished high school. Beginning as a medical assistant in a doctor's office, where she performed lab and radiology work, she moved on to work in a private lab. She has worked in hospitals, as a private caregiver and in hospice caring for those who were in their final days of life. This serves her well as she now ghostwrites for elderly individuals who want to see their life in words. Along with writing original books of some 150 pages, she also proofreads for other authors.
Remaining in the medical profession, she takes medical dictation from radiologists, deciphers it and rewrites it into a language that is understandable. Music is another major part of her life. As a folk harpist, she attends international conventions and workshops and belongs to harp organizations. She is in a band that plays old timey music as well as a gypsy jazz combo.
As a doula, she also shares her time (usually nighttime!) with mothers who are giving birth . She shares information with them and stays by their side during the birth process; encouraging them and helping them through a beautiful experience. In addition, she is a local volunteer police officer. She goes to regular training courses, to the firing range for practice runs and drives the police vehicle throughout her neighborhood once a week. Among her other passions are sailing, snorkeling, hiking and, of course, reading.
Gayla loved the technical writing course, where the teacher taught everything from grammar to producing technical manuals. She excelled in the course and her final project was a complete (and complicated) user guide for a product that she invented. It was a great success both in the writing, the layout and the final printing. She also learned technology in regards to the inside components of a computer and how they operate so she would understand how to explain them in text. She handled many assignments well and was successful in everything from quick guides through to final projects. Most of the work was done in Word, but she also learned Framemaker and Robohelp, including the production of online teaching manuals.
Gayla continued her studies to take an additional course in Framemaker. It is a program that she is very interested in due to its strong capabilities. Following her successful completion of the course and the assignments, she earned a certificate in Framemaker.
Gayla continued studying while working in freelance positions and job-hunting. She uses everything she learned as a basis for the work she does today.
Gayla was one of the best students at the technical school. She understood the concepts of marketing and went on to use them in writing white papers or brochure copy. Although it was an online course, she was in close contact with the teacher of the course and she learned a great deal from him. Along with the writing assignments, she enjoyed learning basic electronics.
Gayla G. has been writing search engine optimized copy for the web for nearly five years and can tackle a variety of subjects. She has written hundreds of individual and corporate bios as well as online profiles and original content covering everything from medical issues to new developments in hi-tech to wine to Brazilian forestry. She has written blogs relating to women's health issues, wine as an investment, beauty products and environmental issues. The past two years have also found her ghostwriting the autobiographies of interesting people as well as proofreading books before they go to print. With a background in technical writing, she writes user manuals, quick guides and product instruction sheets. Her work is fast, accurate and written according to customer specifications.
