Handwriting is a fascinating subject because of the many nuances of the human elements. Many people may try to trick others by altering their own handwriting, disguising it, or even copying other's. But, a good handwriting analyst knows the difference. And a great one can tell you all about it!
I have been a Handwriting Analyst since 1999, and a Document Examiner assistant since 2015.
As a Member of SAFE (Scientific Association of Document Examiners) since 2015, and a member of their board of directors as SAFE International Quarterly editor. I am also a member of IADE (International Association of Document Examiners) since 2020. I participate in Kathie Koppenhaver's Monday Classes since 2018. And working directly with Reed Hayes, FDE and Warren Spencer, FDE to develop excellent skills as a document examiner and presenter of researched evidence in document examination cases.
My passion began as a behavioral graphologist, having studied the Felix Klein course, the Sheila Lowe course of gestalt graphology and the Insyte Challenge course (which I now own and operate following Sr. June Canoles and Trish Towey's retirement). Additionally, I am the Education Chair for the American Handwriting Analysis Foundation (AHAF). And, I am webmaster and newsletter editor for the American Association of Handwriting Analysts (AAHA) .
My Business is "Expressed in Writing, LLC" and covers all three legs of Handwriting:
