Click to edit position descriptionAs an editor, I help academics, authors, and publishers polish their writing into clear, compelling content. I am particularly skilled at consolidating texts to allow the author's intent to shine through, even under tight word count limits.

As a writing consultant, I partner with authors to strengthen key aspects of their writing techniques or provide action-oriented accountability to help them meet a deadline. I thrive on helping people better use and express their voice so they can go on to accomplish their writing-related goals with finesse.
