Kathy BlixrudI graduated from Augsburg College with a B.A. in English. I have had experience with many writing, editing and proofreading projects, including

  • newsletters,
  • books,
  • resumes,
  • websites,
  • class materials,
  • historical research
  • political speeches.

I am the co-author of five books which can be found on www.lulu.com. I am currently a member of the Professional Editors Network (PEN) in Minnesota, on the board of Minnesota MUFON (secretary and treasurer) and on the governing committee of Marscon (treasurer).

Previous positions and organizations include Toastmasters (president and treasurer), Citystock Theater Company (publicity, stage manager, actor and director), The City of St. Louis Park (communications intern and video production assistant) and as a production assistant and extra for the movie “Purple Haze.” Other groups include The U.S.S. Phoenix Star Trek fan club and the Celestial Affiliation of Time Lords Doctor Who fan club. I was the newsletter editor for the ICF

Employment includes working in logistics, accounting and receivables for Fingerhut Corporation, receivables and logistics for International Multifoods and receivables for BLM Technologies. Various temp jobs were scattered throughout as well as work in retail at J C Penney’s, Montgomery Wards and Zayre Shoppers City. I am good on phones, cash registers, computers and can probably unjam most copiers.

Besides the B.A. in English, I have three minors, Communications, Philosophy and Business Administration. I am a Certified Life Coach through Adler Graduate School. I have studied with the National Association of Credit Management, Minneapolis, and taken graduate level courses at the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul.

I am a Reiki Master, and am a student of various intuitive modalities. If you have an interest in these areas, please contact me. I may be looking for people who can be volunteers as I practice, or as students for a class.

I have been writing and editing my whole life, either within a company or as a volunteer for an organization. I use my education, training, experience and my intuition to work with you. I bring in my skills as a life coach to better understand your needs and goals. If what you need done is not listed here, ask me. We can explore how I can be of help.

Please contact me so we can explore how we can work together!
