Overview

I am excited to add my recent experience working at a community-schools nonprofit, for which I oversaw the writing, editing, copyediting, and proofreading of parent guides, newsletters, a website, and board documents, to the expertise I deployed as a budding copyeditor of nonfiction. In the nonprofit arena, writing that is clear and persuasive is crucial, and I have honed my editing skills in service of issues affecting children and families. If you are working on any manuscript having to do with the built environment, think of me for that, too, as I have worked as an architectural historian for a planning organization, a museum, and an arts council. I consider it a privilege to hold an author’s voice in my head and to ensure that his or her thoughts and viewpoint are expressed with precision. This implies a responsibility to authors, and I take that seriously.
