Hi there! I’m Diane. I’m an editor and writer based in New York City. I’ve spent the entirety of my career in academic publishing.
I’ve worked in various editorial roles (editor, editorial project manager, program manager) in-house at Wolters Kluwer Health/Lippincott, Williams, & Wilkins and Pearson Education, while also freelancing for clients like Rowman & Littlefield, Seatgeek, and Relix Magazine. My skills include copy editing, proofreading, project management, and fact checking.
What can you expect from working with me? I'll:
-keep you updated along the way
-and (most importantly!) make your writing the best it can be, while preserving your voice as author.
Whether you need thorough editing or just a basic proofread of your work, I'm here to help.
I edit, proofread, fact-check, and write copy, articles, and newsletters for the American Journal of Nursing (AJN).
Additionally, I help manage the journal's production process and contribute content to its blog and social media accounts.
