Profile

I am an ambitious freelance editor with a focus on copy editing and proofreading. I specialize in editing web content, essays, media releases, memos, speeches, and correspondence. I am currently also transitioning to editing fiction and non-fiction books. I have a Certificate in Publishing and a B.A. in English. My communication skills are excellent, and I'm deeply devoted to excellence in my work.

I have 2 years of experience copy editing in a full-time capacity, publishing ~150,000–200,000 words per month. I have an additional 2.5 years of experience editing in an ancillary capacity as an administrative assistant to a senior government official.

My primary areas of expertise are information technology, politics, finance, communications, and the humanities (with a special focus on literature and contemporary fiction).
