Having worked as a freelance typist, my clients included various hospital clinics throughout Australia, including Westmead Hospital (NSW), Frankston Hospital (VIC), Albany Mental Health (WA), and other private practices, including a Gynaecologist and an Orthopod.
I thoroughly love typing and combined with Medicine, I feel that although Medical Typing is my niche, I am happy to type (including data entry) anything at all.
From January 2013
I currently volunteer my services to my sick and elderly neighbours, completing such tasks as shopping, paying bills, driving to medical appointments etc. I thoroughly enjoy helping people.
