In addition to all the wonderful stuff that I do and have accomplished, I’m also a certified phlebotomist. My most recent venture in phlebotomy is taking blood from those people who turn up preliminary positive on the HIV rapid test. For my credentials, you can check out my Phlebotomy Certificate.
As a Gold Member who donates blood often at the American Red Cross, I think that everyone who has the capacity to donate blood should do it. You can save lives just by giving 45 minutes of your time.
Transcription & Coding
I started transcribing and coding as an undergraduate student and I learned quite a bit from the experience. I’ve learned that transcribing can be difficult or easy depending on the type of interview. I type 70 words per minute and I’ve transcribed all of my research interviews, as well as transcribed for all of the different researchers that I have worked with. In addition to transcription, I also code interviews and have a knack for finding key themes in the research. I have been known to get interviews done quickly so that you can move on to the next step in your research process. Depending on the type of research and interview, my prices range from $25 to $50 per hour.
