Profile

PROFESSIONAL PROOFREADER. Spot a typo at 50 paces? Of course! But I don't stop there – I also dial phone numbers, type in website addresses, check consistency, click on weblinks, send test emails, and independently verify every single fact and figure. (Essentially, I check everything but the word "the", and even "the" gets a once-over!) My specialty is advertising – annual reports, websites, print ads and brochures – but, of course, I'm happy to proof all materials! My client list includes BC Ferries, BC Ferries Vacations, BC Hydro, Deloitte, Polygon, Kirk & Co. Consulting, Industry Training Authority, Rocky Mountaineer Vacations, and many advertising agencies and graphic design firms. And, although proofreading is my first love, my background also includes over 25 years in marketing management, editing, copywriting, project and event management, and print production, so I know what impact my work has on the client side of the desk. For more information, see my website at www.proofingqueen.com, and for the absolute best proofreading you'll ever experience, call or email me today.
