My greatest joy in editing is turning a complicated, slightly awkward sentence into a clear, elegant sentence while still maintaining the writer’s original voice. Editing is an enjoyable puzzle. A close second is finding that one typo that will distract your reader away from your main message.
I have more than five years of experience editing for professional and trade associations, schools and universities, and B2B/B2C clients. I am known for polished and accurate writing that holds readers’ attention. I have worked on:
magazines and journals
nonfiction and instructional books
marketing and communications materials
reports and white papers
I am proficient with the Chicago Manual of Style and the Associated Press Stylebook, and I have worked with the American Psychological Association and Modern Language Association style guides.
I am an active member of the American Copy Editors Society, and I attend the conference annually to keep abreast of the latest trends and techniques in copy editing and proofreading.
