Published Author in New York City and student success and retention administrator.

Methodology

The only way to learn to write or read is to start writing and reading with the help of a guide who has been both an author and book editor. When I finish editing your work, you will marvel at how well you write, because I do so while retaining your unique signature.

Background

I have been writing and helping students and professionals for over 40 years with real world experience. After retiring as a Student Success Administrator at Pace University in New York City I started a part time coach and consulting company.
