    Darshana:

    Can you tell me a little more about what this client of yours is looking for as a Grant Writer?

    I have written, applied for and received several SBIR phase I and II grants and have parlayed them into successful products a few times in my career. But I am not a dedicated grant writer, nor do I do that full time. However, I do have some experience and would like to see if I can help.

    With my best.
