Young publishing industry professional with a keen eye for all things editorial and grammatical.

Overview

I'm a wordsmith, grammar nut, and editor. I live to edit everything around me, whether it's signs at the store or typos in newspapers—as long as it's written down, I enjoy editing it. But my greatest passion is editing books. As an avid reader, I love helping authors improve their craft and helping them to shape their stories. When authors achieve their dreams and create pieces that they're proud of, I'm excited to help them make it something better. So let me help you share your story and make it something you're proud of.
