I am an experienced professional freelance copy editor with particular expertise in working with English as a Second Language (ESL) authors. My areas of focus are academic editing (for graduate students as well as established scholars) across a wide range of disciplines in the social sciences, humanities, environmental studies, as well as nonfiction and nonprofit sector editing in areas related to international development and natural resource management. In addition, I have edited fiction (a book of short stories). I provide basic and substantive editing services, as well as guidance on content and structure of academic and other manuscripts. I am also available for expert reviews of manuscripts prior to publication.
