Favorite referencing style
My favorite referencing style is AMA because it seems the most clean and straight forward. There is a specific and precise way to communicate medical content, and the AMA referencing style suits this medicine-specific language very naturally.
Why I became an editor
I love words and language. I switched my major from Math to English in the middle of my undergraduate career, and after graduating, I taught HS English and worked for newspapers as an editor and reporter. I always missed my science classes though, especially human medicine, so I decided to go abroad to attend medical school. I was thrilled to find a job as a medical editor a few months later, where I get to combine my love of books, language, learning, and human medicine.
Background and experience
I managed content delivery in a media-neutral format for multi-component projects for print, electronic, and web-based publication. I’ve guided physicians through the developmental process of their books, chapters, and electronic ancillaries. I've written and edited abstracts, informational pamphlets intended for public education, and book reviews for medical and scientific publications.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love being a crucial element in communicating knowledge to the world. I especially enjoy editing and proofreading anything on human medicine, especially emergency medicine, internal medicine, mental health, and pharmacology. I have experience with copyediting in AMA, Chicago, MLA, and APA.
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
I love cooking and traveling when I can. I went to a cooking school in Bangkok, Thailand, years ago, and I'm still trying to impress people with my tom yum kung.
I first like to know who the intended audience is and what exactly the author is trying to communicate. It's also important for me to know how that content will be used.
