I provide high-quality, personalized editing to faculty, graduate students, and academic organizations. Our work together will help you communicate more effectively. As a trained professional writer and educator with a passion for clear writing, I’ve spent years assembling a toolbox of strategies to help you say exactly what you want in a way that resonates with your audience. 

I focus on language editing of scholarly manuscripts. I frequently work with high-stakes material in education, healthcare, hospitality and tourism, psychology, sociology, and STEM. In addition, I provide developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading services for conference materials, grants, research proposals, and textbooks. I am available for copywriting projects as my schedule allows and am open to ongoing collaborations/contract work. Many of my clients are non-native English speakers, especially from Asia.

Edited manuscripts have been published in the following journals: Computer Networks, Current Issues in Tourism, Impact Assessment and Project Appraisal, Journal of Business Research, Journal of Destination Marketing & Management, Journal of Education and Learning, Journal of Travel Research, Psychiatry Research, South African Journal of Philosophy, Tourism Management, Turkish Studies, and others.

Domestic client affiliations include Brookings, Harvard University, Temple University, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania, and University of South Carolina. International client affiliations include Edith Cowan University (Australia), The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, University of Waikato (New Zealand), Xiamen University (China), and Zhejiang University (China).
