My name is Katherine Noftz Nagel.
I started freelancing as a technical writer after a 17-year career as an R&D chemist. As my clients have changed, I’ve learned the skills and tools I needed to satisfy their needs. I’ve gradually added editing, web design, one-on-one computer coaching, web site audits and evaluations, Windows and Mac troubleshooting, and instructor-led training to my repertoire. This lets me customize the services I offer to my clients, providing exactly what each client needs for their current project.
Freelancing suits me perfectly. I have an obsessive need for variety; when I get bored, I get seriously cranky. As a freelancer, I’m almost never bored, even when the project description looks similar to something I’ve done before because every client is different. Dealing with different types of projects for several clients is my idea of heaven. As long as I have several active project folders overlapping on my desk, I’m happy and so are my clients.
