Favorite referencing style
I have yet to develop a preference for a particular referencing style. I do appreciate that we have a variety of styles available, depending on the type of document, and that they are really all about consistency.
Why I became an editor
Once, while giving suggestions to a student regarding a doctoral project, she suddenly said, “You are really good at this!” Her comment really got me, and I later realized that editing, a great mix of science and art, allows me to be of help to others while taking a deep dive into a particular subject.
Background and experience
My professional editing experience began as a research assistant with the Veteran Affairs REAP and involved archiving historical journal publications and proofreading manuscripts prior to submission. I have clinical experience in otolaryngological, educational, non-profit, and birth and pediatric hospital settings as a member of interdisciplinary teams that included developmental pediatrics, speech language pathology, occupational and physical therapy, psychology, counseling, and oncology.
Why I love proofreading and editing
Proofreading allows me to follow a natural inclination. I love tidying the page and making it work best for the author’s needs. I particularly enjoy proofreading and editing anything on biological sciences, education, healthcare, and the intersection of these subjects with theological and religious studies.
