Primary contact: 


Does language distract your readers? As a board-certified Editor in the Life Sciences (ELS) with 24 years' experience, I work with you to produce such clear, error-free writing that your readers ignore the language and focus on your message.

Whether you require scientific editing (biology, medicine, psychology), or grammar and writing tips (see my website), I can help. Your journal articles, reports, or brochures can be adapted to American Medical Association (AMA) or American Psychological Association (APA) style. If English is your second language, I will revise your work for natural English expression.

How did I become a medical editor? Enthusiasm for science (BSc Hons, biology) and a love of language (BA, English) created my ideal career! Client comments: “Reliable, prompt, and thorough.” “Consistently on time or ahead of schedule.” “Excellent work. I’ll recommend you highly.”
