Profile

Fun to work with, experienced, competent editor. I love variety in my work: Editing a retailer's newsletter, proofreading academic journal submissions, and turning medical jargon into plain language are my current joys. Well-educated and detail-oriented, I apply style guides with precision and happily break the rules too, if that's what works best for you. 

Imagine all your ideas being shared with ease! Let's bring clarity and flow to your communications, I'm looking forward to it. 

I'm a tech wiz who happens to love handwriting (fountain pens!) and I do advanced work with Microsoft Office products, Apple software (Mac/iOS), and Google docs. My clients say my technology tips are life-changing. I also work with Adobe InDesign and Quark XPress, and learn new programs quickly.
