Favorite referencing style

Picking a favorite referencing style is difficult because I have worked with many different types, and I appreciate their distinctions. However, I will choose APA because it is the first referencing style I learned, and I have decades of experience with it.

Why I became an editor

Throughout my career, I have been able to tutor and mentor individuals from various backgrounds in several countries. I currently work as a research assistant while working toward my Ph.D. in information science. I relish the opportunity to improve upon the work of others while preserving their unique voice. I look forward to having the opportunity to collaborate with you!

Background and experience

In addition to my extensive experience in teaching, tutoring, and mentoring students, I spent 11 years working for a small technology investment company where one of my primary responsibilities was editing communications for publication.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I love the gratification I receive from improving a piece of writing. From a young age, I have delighted in finding minute errors that previously went unnoticed. I particularly enjoy proofreading work related to technology, media, and the social sciences.

Favorite book:

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle is my favorite book.

Hobbies:

If I’m not proofreading, writing, or reading, it’s most likely because my chocolate lab has convinced me that it’s time to step away from my laptop and take her for a walk. She can be persuasive!

Editing tips:

When I have finished proofreading a document, I like to print out a hard copy to give it a final check.
