Debbie,
i think youâre confusing business card and resume/vc. youâre trying to put your work experience on a tiny card.

separate cards for different *titles*. (it sounds like you mostly write & edit.) *what* you write & edit is appropriate for a resume, not a b.c. . if you meet & greet travelers that warrants a unique title & b.c. .
