Overview

I'm an editor and proofreader for scholarly articles, academic papers, business communications, and both fiction and nonfiction books. I am especially good at working with non-native speakers of English. I also help students who are developing their college entrance essays.
I have edited several published books that have a spiritual focus. I'm a generalist, though, so I'm comfortable with anything in the general areas of humanities and social sciences -- just not too much math, please.
I have two MA's (Broadcast Communication Arts and Psychology), and I teach college classes in English and Psychology.
