Overview

I am a writer, editor, and publisher with over eight years of broad editorial experience.

I have worked with authors on content ranging from articles to white papers to full-length books, with the bulk of my editorial work falling within the categories of test preparation, academia, new business, and marketing. In the process, I’ve worked with authors of every skillset, including numerous ESL authors, on texts in both British and American English.

Having worked in various roles within the publishing industry, I possess a unique, end-to-end understanding of the process and stages of publishing and have worked with authors at every juncture, from brainstorming ideas to refining authorial style to proofreading the final text. I excel at keeping projects running smoothly and on deadline.

As an editor, I am empathetic but firm and possess a keen eye for detail. Previous clients have noted, in particular, my ability to inhabit the reader's persona in order to clarify difficult or important concepts and improve organization. I am ever mindful that my role as an editor is not to change or influence the authorial voice, but to enhance it and to ensure that the content is delivered in an engaging, sharp, and organized manner, free of inconsistencies, formatting issues, typos, and grammatical mistakes.

If you are looking for an editor and/or proofreader who is diligent, communicative, and invested in your success, I hope you won't hesitate to reach out.
