Favorite referencing style

APA is my favorite because I like the way it's presented and I find it easy to work with.

Why I became an editor

I studied marine biology and zoology at university. I then went on to study nursing, and I began a career as a learning disability nurse. Writing was always one of my strengths, and I thought about proofreading when looking for a new career that could fit around my caring commitments at home. I really enjoy the detail that goes into proofreading, and I feel that it is a great way to utilize my skills to help others with their writing.

Background and experience

My main work experience has been as a learning disability nurse. I qualified in 2001 and worked in various NHS settings around the UK for 16 years, gaining a lot of experience and knowledge regarding learning disabilities, autism, mental health, and other health issues, as well as the healthcare and social care system. I left nursing due to caring commitments and began work as a self-employed foot health professional.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I enjoy the detail and care that go into proofreading, finding errors and typos, and improving a piece of writing. I also enjoy the variety that comes with reading different pieces of writing.

Favorite book:

Mike Tomkies’ Running Wild is my favorite book.

Hobbies:

When not proofreading, I enjoy playing guitar and listening to music, birdwatching, walking my dog, playing with my chinchilla, and reading (of course)!

Editing tips:

I like to skim read a document first to get a feel for the style and tone.
