“Reading, even proofreading, is always a pleasure.”
Favorite referencing style
APA. IEEE may seem the simplest; however, as I have a lot of experience with APA, it has become second nature.
Why I became an editor
My childhood dream was to be a published author, and I studied publishing at university to get a good feel for the industry. I then spent a lot of time in my professional life writing letters, procedures and training guides.
Being a proofreader allows me to combine a lot of this experience with my love of reading, writing and helping people.
Background and experience
I've always worked in customer service to one degree or another. I spent two years working as part of a complaints team for a utilities company, responding to written complaints by either letter or email.
I then took this experience to another industry: fleet leasing and management. Here, I put together training courses and procedure documents for the entire customer service department.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love helping people, and to know that I've helped someone fine-tune their work gives me a real sense of pride.
