Favorite referencing style

I have full flexibility to work with any referencing style.

Why I became an editor

I have always had an eye for detail and a strong work ethic. Proofreading allows me to apply that precision and excellence to my work.

Background and experience

After graduating university, I pursued my interests in research and education. While working at the Chicago Botanic Garden and the Morris Arboretum, I developed and refined the texts for two public garden exhibits. For the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service, I practiced technical writing while documenting research results as a lab technician. Later, I trained and supervised volunteers at a community food bank. Recently, I taught grammar, spelling, and writing skills to ESL students online.

Why I love proofreading and editing

Helping my clients present their best work motivates me to do my best work.
