Overview

Accomplished and knowledgeable professional with experience in editing, proofreading, writing, editorial workflow, teaching, educational curriculum development, tutoring, public speaking, and health care research. Every past experience of mine makes me a better editor, and I learn from each project I take on. Past projects have included: memoir, devotionals, science fiction romance, mainstream fiction, short story collections, stand-alone short stories, educational materials and articles, PowerPoint decks, blog content, Department of Defense proposals and more. So far, I haven't met a genre I don't like! My goal is to be transparent from the beginning and leave you with a project that shines so that you'll want to work with me again.
