Editor, Writer, Educator | Inspiring others to improve and complete their written work

Are you worried about your spelling or grammar? Do you need someone to check for consistency throughout your project? Does your work need a little polish before being published? Or maybe you need to collaborate with someone to work out the kinks in your writing?

Look no further; I can help.

(I even know how to properly use a semi-colon and can easily explain it to you. Or I can fix it for you, and you never have to worry about it!)

My varied background (high school science teacher, lab technician, zookeeper, cashier...), intense thirst for knowledge, and eagle eye make me the editor/proofreader you need. I have a wide range of information already in my head and the ability and desire to research anything else that I need to know for a project. On top of that, I am a voracious reader, which helps me stay on top of trends while exposing me to traditional grammar, too.

I have experience with different style guides, especially the Chicago Manual of Style. I am willing to work with an in-house guide you may have developed, or even just be sure you are consistent within your own personal style.

Having lived abroad and traveled extensively, I can even be sure you are staying within a specific regional dialect in your writing.

I like working collaboratively with authors to perfect that originally awkward sentence or decide on a formal or informal tone, etc. However, I am just as willing to hand you a proofread document with proverbial red ink on it for you to decide what to change.
