Before becoming a freelance book editor, I was the publisher and editor of an online magazine for 5 years. I was also a corporate paralegal for 5 years at a trade association in Washington, D.C., as well as an editorial staff member at the National Capital Area Paralegals Association and The American Bankers Association.
Together, I have about a decade worth of experience as an editor, a publisher, and a storyteller. I offer personal one-on-one service and dedicate my time and efforts to ensuring that your story is exactly what you envision it to be. If this is what you've been looking for, then you're in the right place, I look forward to helping you tell your story, whatever that story may be.
