I love science, but more importantly, I love helping clients convey their science to the audience of their choice.
Rates vary, depending upon the project and time requirements, and are billed hourly, payable in US funds.
Online payments can be made here.
My services are customized to meet the specific needs of each client. I can attend symposia or research team meetings and distill the gathered information into reports, or perform reviews of the current literature in your field of interest.
I can edit all forms of scientific writing: manuscripts, technical reports, grant proposals, etc. I perform all levels of editing, including copy, substantive, stylistic, project and ghostwriting.
I can write original documents (papers, brochures) for publication, based on client-supplied protocols and data.
My editing projects have included academic manuscripts, grant proposals, Canadian provincial government agency reports, website content, patient brochures, literature reviews, and quarterly technical digests.
I have lots of volunteer experience: Mayo Clinic Arizona, and on the boards of the Los Diamantes HOA (VP & social committee) and DMHS International Baccalaureate Parents' Association (communications officer). I also am enthusiastic about fitness and hike regularly, as well as teach Zumba (licensed since 2017).

"HBI Expert Advisory Committee Impressed During Visit
"The Hotchkiss Brain Institute Expert Advisory Committee (EAC) visit on November 2 went very smoothly....
A science writer, Sheila Hotta-Mitchell [sic], was in attendance throughout the meeting. She has been very effective in generating the first draft of a report that the advisors are now working on to finalize. The visit was very well organized and coordinated and the EAC has asked Wee to express their deepest gratitude to Yvonne, Dan and Sheila for making their visit easy, comfortable and enjoyable. We share the EAC's sentiments and thank these individuals profusely."
"Thanks so much, Sheela--it looks lovely and captures all of what we spoke about over coffee."
"The modules are excellent, and that is exactly what I want you to do."
