I'm a copyeditor, project editor (project manager), and proofreader with an editing certificate from the University of Washington. In addition to editing, I have also been performing and teaching music for almost 30 years and have a Master's degree in music education from Washington State University. I enjoy bringing my attention to detail to help clients create quality projects.
I managed a team of freelancers including the author, copyeditor, designer, mapmaker, and two proofreaders. I managed deadlines and budgets; ensured that the project met house and series style requirements; copyedited, proofread, and collated changes for a variety of materials including front and back matter, photos, maps, captions, layout, and manuscript; and meticulously managed file storage and revisions.
I was the pages proofreader for this book. I proofread final layout, maps, photos, captions, front and back matter (including table of contents, resources, and index) for grammar and punctuation, design, and house/series style errors.
I was the galley proofreader for this day hiking book. I proofread draft maps and initial layout of the manuscript for accuracy, consistency, mechanical errors, and adhesion to house and series style.
Duties included logging and evaluating unsolicited manuscripts, applying for Library of Congress cataloguing data, researching references for biographies, proofing ebook publications, fact-checking resource sections and bibliographies, proofreading map detail, proofreading and copyediting manuscripts, indexing, researching competitive titles, and summarizing book proposals for the acquisitions process.
