Why I became an editor

For as long as I can remember, I have been intrigued by books and languages. I was fortunate to grow up in a multilingual environment where I had a lot of opportunities to continuously widen my knowledge both at home and in school.

Not only do I love to read and write myself, but I also enjoy helping others with their writing. As a result, I soon became the go-to person for text revision and grammar or spelling advice.

Proofreading allows me to do what I love and use my skills to help others.

Background and experience

I have worked as a freelance copywriter, proofreader and graphic designer.

Editing and proofreading were part of previous jobs at Tetra Pak in the Netherlands (2016–2019).

Why I love proofreading and editing

I love making a text flow naturally and look good at the same time. Being able to improve a project by editing and proofreading gives me great satisfaction. I mostly enjoy editing any piece on communication, education, marketing, music and history. I have experience with APA referencing and knowledge of other style guides.

Favorite book:

“Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen.


When I'm not proofreading, I'm probably spending time with my family, enjoying music, reading or out hiking.

Editing tips:

I always start by skimming the document to get a first impression of the project.
I like keeping a checklist next to me as I work.
