I provide services that range from copy/line editing to proofreading to indexing to fact-checking. I have a bachelor's degree in communication and English, and a master's degree in English. I finished my undergraduate degree near the top of my class and my graduate program at the top of my class.
I have experience in a wide variety of genres and am willing to tackle any category. In addition to my editing, etc., services, I'm a published author myself (nonfiction), most recently in the Dictionary of Midwestern Literature, Volume 2, as well as in a variety of academic journals (mostly on the topic of women's literature) and conference proceedings. I have written several columns for my current job (under my maiden name—Hopkins) and also do ghostwriting for advertising clients in this role.
I manage and edit all content for this online-only news source, as well as ghostwrite advertising content. My writing can be found by searching for "Ashley Hopkins" (my maiden name) on the site; my ghostwriting can be found by accessing the sponsored content category, where I have written all the content under various names for various industries.
I taught English 1, English 2, World Lit 1, World Lit 2, and Developmental Grammar to both high school seniors enrolled in college classes and traditional college students. During my time at CSCC, I also wrote several academic papers and attended conferences where those papers were presented.
