Favorite referencing style

My favorite referencing style is Harvard because I find it clean and succinct, but APA is a strong second!

Why I became an editor

My love of writing and communication led me to pursue a second master's degree in gender studies. I became an editor upon recommendation from a professor and mentor who showed me that I didn’t have to choose between my passions. I just created my niche! I have always been a writer, and I love the power of words. Proofreading lets me exercise my perfectionism, explore different styles of writing, learn new things, and help people communicate effectively.

Background and experience

As a communications officer, I was responsible for news articles, website content, reports, and social media in collaboration with academic, civil society, government, and other stakeholder groups. As an independent gender consultant, I performed assessments of community-based constraints for women’s empowerment through agroforestry projects. I also worked as an ESL teacher, a content coordinator, and the head of proofreading for a college newspaper.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I love that every piece of writing is unique. As a proofreader, I am kept on my toes to deliver the best results possible. Plus, there's always something new to learn. I find this combination really engaging!

Favorite book:

10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World by Elif Shafak is my favorite book.


When I'm not proofreading, I'm most likely playing roller derby, walking my dogs, or getting lost in a book.

Editing tips:

I like to skim read random paragraphs of the document to get a feel for the author's voice. This helps me to understand the structure and avoid getting lost in the content while proofreading.
