Overview

Have you ever read a novel with an amazing story only to be distracted by errors throughout? I’m here to help with that! Having a second set of eyes view your work is a great way to eliminate errors you may have missed.

I’ve received training in proofreading, copy editing, and line editing in order to spot errors you may not notice. I have a certificate in proofreading, copy editing, and line editing from Edit Republic. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Graduate Certificate in Human Resources Management. My education and experience provide me with skills in writing, research, critical thinking, communication, management, decision-making, and more.

In my free time, I enjoy reading fantasy and science fiction, along with romance and a non-fiction book here and there thrown in for good measure. I like to peruse a little of everything! Because reading is a passion of mine, I enjoy helping writers perfect their message. Contact me so we can get started polishing your next masterpiece!
