Favorite referencing style

Chicago footnotes or Oxford referencing are my favorite styles.

Why I became an editor

I’ve always loved learning, which has allowed me to develop a good level of knowledge on various topics. While I love art, my career took me in another direction and allowed me to build my business process and managerial skills. But one thing never changed – I was always finding errors in the materials I read!
To save the trees (and virtual ones) and the readers' eyes, I decided to solve the problem at its source and become a proofreader.

Background and experience

I dealt with many academic texts when I started work on my PhD. In the first company I worked for, I quickly became responsible for editing other people's work. Later in my career, I worked in data quality, and in more senior roles, I was often responsible for the final review of business documents before they were distributed to a wider audience. I always had to restrain myself from emailing the publisher of every book in which I found a typo.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I love being able to help people deliver their message in a perfect way, free of any distractions. I enjoy the variety that comes with proofreading texts across multiple areas and the opportunity to learn about them at the same time as I help share the knowledge.

Favorite book:

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller is my favorite book.

Hobbies:

When I'm not proofreading, I'm eating, reading a book, traveling, or learning something on yet another completely random subject...because curiosity killed the cat.

Editing tips:

Following the client's style sheet (as well as constructing my own) while working on a document helps me to build a checklist I can refer to throughout the process.
