Overview

A good editor provides a service that is so much more than simply pointing out typos or grammatical errors. I want to help you take your writing to the next level, to assist you in crafting professional, well-written content, and to make you sound like the best possible version of you!

No matter the project, I'm happy to help you, and will give your writing my full attention. I can polish and refine your writing to give it that extra edge, whether for the workplace, classroom, or publishing industry. Let me help you put your best foot forward.

In the years I've spent working with words, I've been fortunate enough to work on a wide variety of projects. In the realm of books, I've worked on many fiction titles, including romance (through my work as a proofreader for Harlequin) and YA genres, and I've worked on a variety of nonfiction titles as well, in the genres of memoir, motivational & self-help, and sports history. I have over four years' experience working with academic texts, from academic journal articles to essays, dissertations, and papers. I also have experience working with business documents, including handbooks, training modules & manuals, resource guides, & annual reports.
