While new to the professional editing field, I am passionate about good writing and making sure everything is accurate! I think I have secretly wanted to be an editor for a long time, since I enjoyed correcting student's work in school and even became an English major in college.

I began recipe testing a few years ago through David Leite's food blog. I loved providing my opinion and suggestions for recipes after trying them out at home. I have also worked as a Culinary Arts Assistant at a cooking school in Manhattan for the past few years. This has taught me a great deal about cooking in general and I have enjoyed learning so many cooking techniques and new recipes to try.

Furthermore, I am obsessed with reading food blogs and cookbooks. I love finding new and interesting recipes to try out! I have even been developing my own recipes, which can be found online through Stone Pier Press.
