Favorite referencing style
APA because it's the most straightforward style.
Why I became an editor
I have always been an avid reader, particularly of history. While reading, I often spot errors that have slipped through, and I always wish that I could correct these. Errors interrupt the flow of reading and reflect badly on the author.
I'm also a perpetual student and lifelong learner. My proofreading skills have been helpful here with essay writing. I would like to help others produce their best possible work, too. It's often difficult to spot errors in your own writing, and this is where a proofreader can help.
Background and experience
I have a background of working in law firms as a word processor/document production technician, which involved typing or formatting documents covering a wide variety of topics. I have also trained as a medical transcriptionist and love medical terminology.
I have always proofread my own work on the job and in my academic essays. I have proofread websites and resumes for a career counsellor. I have also undertaken voluntary proofreading for Distributed Proofreaders.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love finding errors and correcting them. I enjoy reading and love to read anything about history, art history, or archaeology. I have experience with Harvard, APA, and Chicago referencing styles. Proofreading enables me to put my love of reading to good use.
