BS in Psychology
Favorite referencing style
My favorite referencing style is APA because it's the style I’m the most familiar with. I used it throughout my college career.
Why I became an editor
I majored in psychology at Tulane University with a minor in philosophy. My lifelong love of reading, writing, and understanding people led me to these fields. After graduating, I pursued a career in the wine and spirits industry. I worked as a fine wine sales consultant for a large distributor for five years. However, I decided that a long-term career in sales was not for me. I needed something more. This led me to pursue a career in freelance proofreading, which has been very fulfilling.
Background and experience
I worked as a fine wine sales consultant from 2017–2022, where I wrote and edited weekly sales presentations, called on about 100 accounts, curated wine lists for upscale restaurants, and acted as a liaison between accounts and suppliers. I also worked as an assistant event coordinator from 2015–2017, where I wrote and edited blog and social media posts, communicated with event vendors and clients, organized event timelines, and managed event budgets.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love the satisfaction that comes with helping writers create their best possible work. Plus, who wouldn't love reading as a job? I especially enjoy proofreading anything in the fields of psychology, philosophy, history, politics, and sociology. I'm most experienced in the APA and MLA formats.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is my favorite book.
When I'm not proofreading, I love to cook, watch standup comedy, and travel.
I read the entire document once before making any changes to become familiar with the author's style and tone. While editing, I read each paragraph at least three times before moving on to the next.
