Hello! I am a writer and editor based in the Kansas City area with over 4 years of editing and acquisitions experience. I've worked for several NYC-based publishing companies on just about every non-fiction genre there is—but more recently I've acquired and edited books on parenting, pop-psychology, health/diet, and body, mind, spirit (linked below!) I am the author of the children's book, And Off You Go to Change the World. Editing is my passion, and I want to help you bring your project to the best possible form!

Whether you need in-depth developmental editing, an editorial assessment, or a proofread, I can provide you with the feedback you need to take your project to the next level. Capitalizing on my experience in acquisitions publishing, I can offer helpful tips and suggestions to strengthen your writing, storytelling, and style. Learn to focus and connect with your target audience, develop your narrative, meet and exceed the expectations of publishers, and become the author you've always wanted to be!
