Why I became an editor
I started out editing friends’ college essays for fun. Weird, right? Doing so led me to explore other opportunities to work with writers, and throughout my career, I have been able to work as an editor in chief, a writing tutor, and an ESL instructor.
One thing has always remained constant: I love this line of work. Each project has a unique voice and message, and it is my pleasure to make sure both are communicated effectively and free from errors.

Why I love proofreading and editing
I love helping a writer's voice read clearly and effectively. I quite enjoy proofreading and editing anything about anthropology, biology, and culture. I also love to break into new subject areas, as this presents an opportunity for me to apply my skills in new and rewarding ways.
Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer.
When I’m not clacking away behind a computer, you can find me plotting future travels, exploring the great outdoors, or attempting my next great culinary masterpiece (read: disaster).
I always read sections of each document aloud. This helps me to develop a sense of the author's tone and style so that I can apply that knowledge while editing the piece.
