Day’s Verse:
You get us ready for life:
you probe for our soft spots,
you knock off our rough edges.
And I’m feeling so fit, so safe:
made right, kept right.

Psalm 7:10-11ish

Self Portrait - March 2011Amazing opportunity, too good to pass up! Multitalented young adult available for immediate part- or full-time employment.

If you’ve been thinking to yourself, “I wish I could hire a talented writer and editor who’s a bicycle expert, is an excellent communicator and teacher, and is ferociously well organized, cheerful, energetic, and maybe slightly crazy,” you’re in luck. This 26-year-old is freshly under-employed through no fault of her own. Her misfortune is your good fortune.

Skills and qualifications include:

  • Keen editorial eye.
  • Sharp, concise, and clear writing abilities.
  • Excellent collaborative and communication skills.
  • Natural-born teacher.
  • Efficient, focused, and… squirrel!
  • Bachelor of Science in Technical, Scientific, and Professional Communications.
  • League of American Bicyclists Certified Instructor.
  • 3.5 years at preclinical testing facility.
  • 1.5 years as AmeriCorps intern and bicycle educator and advocate.
  • Proficient computer user.
  • Rapidly able to learn new skills.
  • Smart, talented, and naturally humble.

Experience includes:

  • Substantively revising, editing, copyediting, and proofreading two bicycling-related curricula: One to teach PE teachers about how to become safe bicyclists and how to teach bicycling to their students; and one for the students themselves.
  • Traveling to small, remote towns around Washington State and teaching 2-day bicycle seminars to PE teachers (this is much more involved and challenging than it sounds).
  • Organizing outreach events and volunteers for the Bicycle Alliance of Washington.
  • Writing, revising, and shipping FDA-, OECD-, and other regulatory-compliant immunology, dose formulation analysis, and bioanalysis reports for Charles River Laboratories.
  • Writing six really bad novels during six National Novel Writing Months.
  • Working effectively with some exceptionally strange personality types.

Of course, these lists don’t begin to hint at the fun-loving, cheerful, energetic, and good-natured personality now available as a valuable addition to your business. You really want to hire me to do something part-time, bike-related, and fun!
