LLB (Hons) in Law
University of Leeds
I have mainly worked with APA.
I have always enjoyed reading and writing. As a solicitor, I had to be clear and precise in writing letters and legal documents. I also had to raise queries or request corrections in medical documents to ensure clarity. My love of grammar and punctuation remains a source of amusement to my family but has proved useful when checking schoolwork. When I was made redundant due to the pandemic, I didn't have to look further than the books on my bedside table to see that proofreading was calling me.
I studied law at university and then trained to become a solicitor, qualifying in 1995. I specialised in handling claims for personal injuries sustained in accidents and arising from medical negligence. Unfortunately, having worked for the same firm for over 22 years, I was made redundant as a result of the pandemic.
Although it has been some time since I left school, I have retained my love of English and now enjoy hearing about what my children are learning and helping them where necessary.
I have seen how even the best ideas can be scuppered by typographical or punctuation errors and how the keenest minds can be floored by uncertainty over spelling or grammar. I enjoy polishing a piece of writing so that the ideas and expertise of the writer may be properly appreciated.

‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens.
When I'm not proofreading, I'm most likely cuddling up with my family to watch something on television, reading or sewing.
Sometimes it helps to read passages aloud to myself. If I can hear the point clearly, then so may others.
