Work experience

Owner

Self-employed
March, 2017 – Present (over 1 year)

As a freelance editor, I provide copyediting and proofreading services to up-and-coming authors as well as established authors. I take joy in transforming manuscripts into finished works that not only are free of grammatical, syntactical, logical, and other errors, but also deliver the author's message with clarity and grace.

Assistant Editor

Virtucom Group
February, 2010 – March, 2017 (about 7 years)

I edited customized product descriptions for correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, clarity, logic, and conformity with the client's established style, ensuring SEO best practices were consistently in play. I also proofread all deliverables to ensure the copy was free from any spelling or grammar errors. Additionally, I created, proofread and updated client style guideline documentation and collaborated with contributors to write a column in the in-house newsletter, Virtuventures.

Enchantment—like the vital energy of Eros—defies definition. Poetry more often finds the words for this phenomenon. This book opens a window into the rich writings of C... read more
