I have the most experience with APA, so that one is my favorite. My favorite resource for APA info is the Online Learning Lab at Purdue University.
For nearly as long as I can remember, I've had a penchant for discovering – and, whenever possible, correcting – writing errors. Early on, I reviewed writing for coworkers before they sent important messages to clients, bosses, and even family members. As a communications manager within a large corporation, I proofread and edited colleagues' writing. As a visiting lecturer with two colleges, I reviewed countless papers and corrected hundreds of writing errors.
I hold a bachelor's degree in community service education and a master's degree in adult education. I worked with Corning Incorporated for more than 20 years in a variety of positions, including as a merchandising manager for the Corning Glass Center and communications manager for the IT organization. For more than 15 years, I was a visiting lecturer for two local colleges, teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses. I currently work with the local Career Development Council.
Proofreading and editing play to my strengths and allow me to add value to others' writing. Also, I enjoy learning by reading other people's work. Lifelong learning is one of my passions, and I have learned so much by reading student papers in the past. My work as a proofreader will enable that learning to continue!

Though I don't have a specific favorite book, I love the Armand Gamache series by Louise Penny. I can just see Three Pines in my mind's eye!
Most weekends, you can find me cooking and baking in my little kitchen. I love reading and listening to murder mystery novels. And going out to breakfast is one of my favorite things to do.
Reading through an entire document before making any changes is an important first step to get a feel for the content, tone, and style. Also, I read it aloud very slowly, word by word.
