Favorite referencing style
My favorite referencing style is MLA, purely because I have the most experience with it.
Why I became an editor
I have always found language use to be fascinating, which led me to study linguistics in college. The observational and non-judgmental approach led me to appreciate communication even more while also giving me a deeper understanding of why and how it sometimes fails. With proofreading, I can help people make sure their points get across. And it doesn’t hurt that I love reading and exploring interesting new ideas!
Background and experience
As an administrative professional, I have helped proofread and edit for a number of different types of writing – from fundraising calling scripts to legal documents to budding novels in the works.
Why I love proofreading and editing
Communication is integral to everything in life, but sometimes, the right words or phrases are just out of our reach. I love the puzzle of finding the perfect path forward that will get the intended message across in a clear and convincing way.
