My journey in editing began at UCLA, where I completed my undergraduate degree in Communication Studies and graduated summa cum laude. I worked for the student newspaper as a copyeditor and immediately loved the objectivity of using a style guide to find errors and improve copy. After graduation, I worked as a copyeditor for the Southern California News Group.
My copyediting and proofreading work now centers on assisting publishers in a freelance capacity. As books enter the final stages of production, I either copyedit or proofread the work to ensure conformity to Chicago Manual of Style and any house style rules. I primarily edit Christian nonfiction, but I read widely and would love to work with you on another genre.

As ACBC's Content Manager, I provided edits for all outgoing copy and ensured that our communication was professional, clear, consistent, and free of errors. I also supported the development of ACBC publications by serving as the primary copyeditor for publications in development.
I work with publishers and self-published authors to edit book manuscripts using Microsoft Word's track changes function or Adobe markup tools. I ensure style adherence to various style manuals (including Chicago, Turabian, and Christian Writer’s Manual of Style).
