Favorite referencing style

My favourite referencing style is APA simply because it is what I have used the most. However, I am open to working in all styles.

Why I became an editor

I have always had a love of language and grammar. Although my career has been primarily in social services, I often became the go-to person for anything requiring ‘polishing up’. I felt a deep sense of satisfaction knowing that I could help someone communicate their message with clarity. After my second child was born and I started looking at part-time career opportunities, proofreading seemed like the natural choice. I realized how much I enjoyed the work and knew I had made the right decision.

Background and experience

My most recent roles include employment counsellor, community builder, and child and youth worker. In these roles, I worked with a variety of individuals, including ESL learners and those with mental health challenges.
I have experience proofreading a variety of business documents, such as employee manuals and policies and procedures booklets. I am also quite competent in proofreading essays, particularly those relating to community development, psychology, mental health, and social services.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I love helping others express themselves clearly and eloquently. I also love that I get to be exposed to new research or information about a topic that I might not have otherwise been able to learn.

Favorite book:

1984 by George Orwell.

Hobbies:

When I’m not proofreading, I like to dance around and make giant messes with my kids, listen to and play music, cook, and garden.

Editing tips:

Before making any changes to a document, I first zoom out and skim through it so I have a sense of the flow and intent. I then will zoom in really close so that only a few words are on my screen.
