I am a freelance editor, writer, and publishing consultant with twelve years of professional publishing experience and a specialty in spiritual growth and self-help books and content.
My publishing experience includes working in-house for Thomas Nelson Publishers and Dave Ramsey's organization. I made the leap to freelance in 2013 and now work directly with authors, publishers, and organizations as a development editor, copyeditor, proofreader, writer, and consultant. I’ve enjoyed working on everything from spiritual growth and leadership books, memoirs, and cookbooks, to health and wellness blogs, arts and culture magazines, and financial planning curriculum. If you have an idea and some content you believe will change lives and are ready to invest in your idea through professional editing services, I'd like to hear from you to see if we could be a good fit.
