I am a copy editor of English academic journal articles in APA, CMOS, and scientific styles.

As well, I am currently a proofreader in French. I am able to stylize and match French documents to their English counterparts; I have an intermediate understanding of the French language.

I currently proofread and stylize English and French financial documents, as well as mutual fund regulatory filings in Canada.

Some recent feedback from clients:

"Thank you for all your work and impressive attention to detail. This manuscript has been viewed countless times by me and numerous peers, professors, and another copyeditor."

And from another client:

"Thank you for identifying so many issues."
