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.

Favorite book:

My favorite book is The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

Hobbies:

When I’m not proofreading, I love watching TV shows, reading true crime books, playing board games, and cuddling with my cat, Winston.

Editing tips:

I read a document multiple times and try to give each read-through a purpose. For the last, I put myself in the shoes of the intended audience and try to read it purely from that fresh perspective.
