Favorite referencing style

I prefer MLA style. The in-text citations feel less disruptive to the flow of the document, as opposed to some other referencing styles.

Why I became an editor

I’ve always felt most alive when writing. As a teenager, I wrote novels, articles, blogs, short stories, and I even enjoyed writing essays in school. This led to editing the school newspaper and yearbook and proofreading and revising peers’ creative writing. At my first human resources job, I realized the only thing I enjoyed about it was getting to rewrite the handbook! I am now pursuing a career I am passionate about, and I wish to share the joys of effective and well-written literature.

Background and experience

I have a variety of prior proofreading and editing experience, including reviewing and substantially editing the employee handbook at my first human resources job. Once I decided to pursue a career I was passionate about in 2020, I spent a year taking independent courses on copywriting and content marketing, and I worked as a freelance copywriter specializing in e-commerce web copy.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I love helping writers harness the power of their voice. Effective and concise writing can evoke strong emotions and powerful reactions. My goal is to eliminate the barriers of incorrect grammar and unclear diction to help writers build the connection they hope to create with their audience.

Favorite book:

The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton first made me fall in love with storytelling, and it will always hold a special place in my heart.

Hobbies:

When I'm not proofreading, I can be found writing, cooking, visiting breweries, or building obstacle courses for my guinea pigs.

Editing tips:

When I edit a document, I like to keep the intended reader in mind. I try to determine how someone from this group may interpret the word choice, sentence structure, and tone of the work.
