your creative consultant
I’m ready to work closely with you to achieve the seamless perfection of your creative project. Whether it’s pre-existing or new, I can help from start to finish.
I specialize in proofreading, copyediting, and developmental editing for small or large projects.
Before launching my creative services, I worked with Fortune 500 companies as a consultant in instructional design and development. Prior to that, I worked as an adjunct in higher education.
I have a BA from UCLA and an MFA from Mills College. My fiction, essays, poetry, and prose appear widely in various publications, including The Washington Post, The Millions, The Brevity Blog, IBelieve, Crosswalk, and others. I’m a Christian who writes. I’m a wife, a mom to three children, and a home educator.
Erendira is a skilled and patient course designer, who facilitated the development of an online organizational behavior course. She helped me integrate technology, and identify student learning outcomes, as well as giving me a good sense of how an online course can be successfully developed.

Erendira has a very strong foundation in course development and a very strong foundation in online communications. She was very effective at helping the faculty to make courses interactive, build courses based on student learning outcomes, use the wide variety of tools available for online teaching. Erendira did an excellent job.

The first day I started working at DIRECTV in my role as Sales Center Training Manager, I was informed that I would have to learn InDesign. Due to InDesign being considered the most daunting of programs in my previous organization, I immediately felt intimidated by this prospect. While it did take some self-education, there is no way I could have been successful in my initial design projects without Erendira’s patient coaching and the templates she had built from scratch to support the Team. Through her own diligence and self-discipline, Erendira taught herself InDesign and became the guru to support the other Managers and me. Since design is a majority of our work, I will always be indebted to Erendira for the foundation she provided me and her patient mentoring. Not only is Erendira an expert in design, but she is also a consummate professional and team player. She would be an asset to any team.
