Additional Information

I think I'm above average as a Medical Writer, with my large medical and scientific experience. I've won awards for writing and have had many profiles of interesting subjects published, including Indianapolis Star Magazine. My passions are writing and medicine, and always trying to learn new things, including new technology, which facilitates publication of desired reading,products, events, feedback from meetings and similar writing assignments. I work well writing assignments with desired focus. Also like the "go with," or "follow-type" journalism, and take pictures. 
 
Am also a Licensed Real Estate Broker. Selling from 1985--1993 or later. Conferred with City population--families and single mothers and men just out of school or college on details involved in buying a house in a conference room with husband & wife, sometimes with their children present. This was done before we began to look at houses for which they had qualified. Am a very patient person and know what's important in selling a house, courses, and their wants and needs. I concentrated on their needs, which was the most important aspect of the selling process..Always showed them qualified products, demonstrated their need to be close to certain schools, for example,. and could tell if they really wanted the property. Then told them, "We need to fill out a purchase form then." And so it went. Sold homes from $33,000 to those in the $100,000 and above. I was always delighted when I could get single mothers into a nice home. I always told my clients that their investment was really putting money in the bank by building equity in their house. Like it is investing in a College Degree.Sold Real Estate only when I was married because, as an independent contractor, I could set my own hours and make times for activities in which my spouse wanted me to join him. I continued to sell after my husband's death, but later called it quits, as the costs involved are very high. I did win a Pacemaker Award for quarterly production. I also paid cash for a year-and-a-half old car that I ended up driving for more than 10 years. That was from some of the savings accummulated in my separate savings account. 
I am also qualified to take the exam for the Real Estate Appraiser Licence, as I have taken and passed all of the required cources.
