Profile

I am a meticulous, flexible, careful editor who brings a commitment to excellence and ‘getting it right’ to every project I work on, no matter how big or how small.

I have been in the editing profession for over 15 years and have experience in copyediting, proofreading, developmental editing, production editing, and project management. I understand the importance of deadlines and strive to return material on time.

I have worked primarily with academic materials for higher education, including textbooks, websites, and multimedia ancillaries, but I can tackle any project that lands on my plate. I love to learn new things and am always up for something different and challenging. 

Certified Professional Editor; Honours BA in English & History; MA in English.
