Overview

I'm an established, sophisticated, and just plain superior copy editor and proofreader who demonstrates up-to-date, diversified expertise and gets it right the first time every time by performing editorial magic on written communications in both fiction and nonfiction genres.

I measurably elevate levels of written communication via indisputably expert and powerful—but silent—editorial review. In addition, I perform aspects of fact checking and research while editing material for every imaginable industry: business and finance; education and academia; health care, medicine, and pharmaceutics; and science and high technology.

You'll find yourself agreeing it's the best edit you've ever experienced.
