Overview

I'm an experienced editor offering services in copyediting, proofreading, and developmental work. My specialty is in academic developmental work, but I am adept at fiction and nonfiction copyediting and proofreading. As an acquisitions editor, I work with authors from idea conception to finished manuscript. I view my relationships with authors as a partnership, and I enjoy working with them to reach their target audience.
