I graduated magna cum laude from George Fox University with a degree in writing and literature. Immediately after graduating, I began my career as an editor: for technical resources for an environmental agency. After a year or two on the job, I knew I should have been more specific when I said my dream job was to edit. Since then, I have edited academic dissertations, non-fiction books, and novels, all of which I find more engaging. There is nothing like working when you love your work.
With an uncanny eye for detail, I’m your go-to editor for manuscripts that need a finishing touch. I love finding small details that don’t quite make sense and brainstorming solutions, fixing timeline inconsistencies, and making sure you hook the reader with every sentence you write. I read for sentence flow and have an ear for rhythm and sentence variation. As an author myself, I understand what it takes to craft a manuscript with care, and specialize in what it takes to edit one into perfection.
I charge by the word because I find it’s a win/win situation for both the authors I work with and me. Authors know up front what they’ll be paying, and I get to focus on the words in your manuscript rather than the time on my clock. I’m a collaborative editor who loves emails with authors discussing plot points and ways to make the manuscript shine.
