Favorite referencing style

Most of my direct experience is with Harvard referencing, so I'd say that's my favorite! I've enjoyed getting to know the APA, MLA, and Chicago styles as well.

Why I became an editor

I have always loved working with words and, after graduating from university with a geography degree, found myself keen to explore the world of freelance magazine writing. I have reported on a range of issues related to the environment, social justice, technology, and sustainability, and want to help others craft interesting and meaningful material. Proofreading is the perfect vocation, as it allows me to do exactly that!

Background and experience

My degree demanded a solid grasp of academic style and essay structure, so I'm well equipped to tackle a range of technical documents. My proofreading journey began at university, where I'd often help friends with grammar and phrasing in their essays. Since then, I've had some freelance writing jobs for environmental and science-based magazines, and numerous customer service and hospitality roles to support my writing goals and fund some traveling.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I enjoy helping to convey a strong message in a piece of writing, as well as ironing out errors and making sentences seamless. I love working on documents related to geography, history, and social science, having studied these intersecting subject areas at university.

Favorite book:

“The Song of Achilles” by Madeline Miller. It's a heartbreaking but incredible read!


When I'm not proofreading, I'm likely to be found swimming, dreaming of my next traveling adventure, or mindlessly scrolling through TikTok!

Editing tips:

I often like to read sections of the documents I am working on out loud. I find that this can highlight unexpected errors and awkward phrasing more readily than when reading normally.
