Leaving a staff PR position at a Fortune 500 company to become a freelance business writer appeared to be a risky move at the time, but it paid many professional dividends—including the chance to expand my writing repertoire to include: executive speeches; web content; trade show presentations and white papers; sales meeting and financial analyst talks; magazine articles; video scripts; marketing brochures; and annual reports.

Another dividend - the opportunity to write for companies and organizations working in a broad range of markets and professions:

> Healthcare -- Hospital/Acute Care

> Food Ingredients/Specialty Chemicals

> Public Education

> Travel Marketing & Distribution

> Car Rentals

> Banking/Financial Services

> Consumer Packaged Goods

> Brewing

> Medical Imaging Products

> Pharmaceutical Distribution
