Well, for starters, I am Kate Cardon Parish, a top-notch mom, writer, advocate, and deadline performer. Before children, I ascended in the corporate world as a communication maverick. I excelled at developing written and visual communication tools used to grow business at a credit union in Ann Arbor and then at a global offshore software development company. I loved this life. It afforded me opportunity to learn, meet talented and vibrant professionals, and to travel to many urban landscapes. My communication experience helped my husband build a small business.
Today, I am proud to annex work-at-home-mom to my resume. Additionally, I am a classroom volunteer and an advocate for Kids on the Go, a non-profit in metro Detroit that provides tuition-free physical, occupational and speech therapies during the summer to local children with special needs.
Two decades of success include diverse written, visual and marketing communication expertise. Skills include on- and offline publishing, copy writing, editing, publication design, proposal writing, sales presentations, project management, research and interviewing. Additionally, I am a master at negotiation, calming strategies, problem-solving, time management, multi-tasking, discipline, communication, and patience. My work ethic, commitment and passion are resilient; and I have unlimited energy and agility.
