Overview

I have fifteen years of writing and editing experience across genres and subjects (and style manuals). I provide a range of editorial services for small businesses, solo attorneys, publishers, and writers. I edit doctoral dissertations, legal documents, memoirs, business management books, business articles, novels, and websites. Editors and independent authors appreciate my skills and ability to meet tight deadlines. Small business owners value my accuracy, flexibility, and willingness to “just fix it.”

I’ve seen the process from the other side as a writer on assignment for numerous publications and business clients. I have a certificate in editing and am a member of the American Copy Editors Society.
