Favorite referencing style
I do not have a strong preference for one or the other, but I tend to use Chicago or APA, as they are common styles and pretty intuitive!
Why I became an editor
When I was in middle school, I was blessed to have an English teacher who inspired me to grow as a writer. My writing skills continued to develop throughout high school, and in college, I enjoyed taking a variety of creative writing courses alongside my science major.
I believe that proofreading and editing are essential to the quality and impact of our written work. I look forward to helping those who invest in proofreading and editing services reap the benefits of doing so.
Background and experience
Academically, I have written countless research reports, essays, and personal statements. I have also written and contributed to peer-reviewed articles and manuscripts for publication.
Professionally, I serve as a lead editor on an in-house editing team that reviews numerous research documents.
Voluntarily, I have helped numerous people revise personal statements, essays, resumes, and other content.
All of these experiences have endeared me to the value of proofreading and editing services.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I really enjoy reading and clarifying the thoughts, ideas, and findings of other writers and helping them maximize the impact of their work. Finding and addressing small errors is a wonderful way to help others take the quality of their work to the next level.
My favorite book by far is the Bible, written by so many inspired authors over thousands of years. It remains a best seller and is part of my daily reading practice.
When I am not proofreading, I may be working as a project manager, helping families plan for their birth and postpartum experiences as a doula, or learning more about new interests.
Once I have completed several rounds of proofreading and offering comments, before I finalize a document, I like to use Microsoft Word's "Read Aloud" feature to catch small details I may have missed.
