Favorite referencing style
APA is really clear and I like that!
Why I became an editor
I have loved reading since I was a child, and my father would take me to the local library for something new to read every week. My love for writing is something that I developed later in life. I love writing stories and developing characters. I wanted to take these two passions and incorporate them into my work. Proofreading is the perfect fit for me.
Background and experience
I have worked in many fields, including social care, legal services, the NHS, customer services, and managing a small business for over five years. I have dealt with all aspects of running a business, including social media and marketing. I have worked with clients closely in almost every job I’ve had. I’ve dealt with customers over the phone, face-to-face, and via email. All this experience means I have excellent customer service skills.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love reading other people's work and getting to know their voice and style. As someone that enjoys creative writing, I get great satisfaction from ensuring that an author's work is polished. I also enjoy proofreading anything in the field of social work and business due to my experience. During my degree, I had to use Havard referencing, so I have the most experience with that style.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling is my favorite book.
When I'm not proofreading, I’m writing short stories, cooking, or watching a TV series or movie with my husband.
I like to read the document aloud. I find that I pick up errors easier that way.
