Overview

A rare mix of business and writing/editing education—along with years of nonprofit, government, and corporate experience—provides a unique and well-informed background to my clients. My experience includes both print publishing (writing and editing) and web copywriting and editing. I live in Columbus, Ohio, after twelve years spent in the Christian publishing hub of Nashville, Tennessee. I work as a freelance developmental editor and copyeditor, and before I moved to Columbus, I worked as a full-time editor for Ramsey Solutions, one of the most trusted companies in personal finance, business leadership, and stewardship education with over ten books on national best-seller lists (this is the same company that brought you Financial Peace University, EntreLeadership, and Business Boutique!).

I've worked with authors, pastors, small businesses, and media personalities in both traditional and self-publishing mediums. In addition to my B.B.A, I have an accredited certification in copyediting from the University of California San Diego Extension program. I absolutely love working on nonfiction, especially business leadership, personal finance, career, inspirational, and faith-based content.

Fun fact: In addition to being told by clients and coworkers that I'm incredibly thorough, it's been said that I'm a very encouraging and caring editor. (And I have quite the eye for avoiding and remedying possible cultural, social, and generational sensitivities within content with poise!) It's an absolute joy for me to work alongside an author to get their content where they want it to be and help them accomplish their vision. You can check out my website for more testimonials!
