Favorite referencing style
I prefer the Vancouver style of referencing. I think the number–note system is easier to follow while writing and reading.
Why I became an editor
Spelling and grammar mistakes have always jumped out at me. Over time, I have become increasingly aware of the negative effect that these errors can have on the impact and credibility of a message. My passion for proofreading and editing arose from a desire to help people achieve their goals through their writing.
Background and experience
For nearly 20 years now, I have served as the office manager for an environmental consulting company. This position has offered me the opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of all aspects of the business as well as an appreciation for the importance of clear, concise communication and attention to detail. I have been the final set of eyes on nearly every document produced during this time, editing and formatting reports, letters, emails, forms, tables, graphs, figures and invoices.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I enjoy helping people put the finishing touches on their work, making sure it is a quality product that achieves its goal. I love reading and editing all types of writing, but I particularly like business and scientific documents as well as fiction.
