I am a freelance editor, proofreader, researcher, and writer. I collaborate with publishers and authors to provide the services they require, whether it be a reader's report, edited manuscript, or proofed set of pages. The professional level of my work is noted in the acknowledgments of many of the publications I have included as part of this profile.
After a stint as a staff editor for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, I began freelancing while pursuing a new career in adult education. I have maintained this hybrid profession to this day, where my work in one area informs my work in the other, especially in projects for the J. Paul Getty Trust, where I have been employed as a freelancer for thirty years. Additional clients have included museums, academic institutions, trade publishers, and independent authors (see Work experience).
My publications background has been an asset in my work as an adult educator (ESL, Citizenship, and Literacy) and museum educator, where I have conducted research; created and/or edited curricula, handbooks, and teachers' guides; and structured lessons with manipulables, media, performance, realia, technology, and text. Teaching positions have been with the Los Angeles Unified School District, UCLA Extension's American Language Center, and the University of Texas at San Antonio, among others.
