Favorite referencing style

I'd have to say the Chicago referencing style is my favorite because it's the most familiar! (I used this style for my graduate level research papers.)

Why I became an editor

I discovered my nerdy love for research, writing, and editing during grad school. In fact, I happily edited friends’ papers because I enjoyed the process of refining their writing so much. It was a pleasure to give their thoughts and ideas clarity and impact.

I came to realize that for me, creating a great piece of writing is like solving a fantastic puzzle. It’s finding the perfect combination of creativity, reason, structure, and heart that reaches beyond the page to impact another human being.

Background and experience

I’m a classically trained musician who spent the first part of my career freelancing, playing in various orchestras and ensembles, and teaching private lessons. After transitioning out of music, I helped people move past personal blocks to create fulfilling careers, launched a video production company, and now coach women in finding themselves again after becoming moms. All along the way, I wrote stories, articles, blog and social media posts, and marketing copy. And now here I am at Proofed!

Why I love proofreading and editing

I revel in making that argument flow just right. I love the satisfaction of crafting clear points that not only deliver a message, but are enjoyable to read. I enjoy elevating a piece of writing so it causes the reader to think and act differently, leaving them better for having read it.

Favorite book:

The Culture Code by Daniel Coyle.

Hobbies:

When I'm not proofreading, you can find me hiking, adventuring, powerlifting, watching a documentary, listening to ghost stories, or engaging in some kind of self-development activity.

Editing tips:

I work through a document in waves, searching for different types of errors each time—in the first wave, I’ll spot obvious errors, then I’ll focus on citations, spelling, making comments, etc.
