“Serving as a megaphone to amplify your writer's voice.”
BA in Sociology
Favorite referencing style
I have experience with writing and editing in numerous referencing styles, including (but not limited to) APA, MLA, Harvard, and Chicago.
Why I became an editor
I was a bookworm growing up – my favorite pastime was curling up with a good book for hours. In school, my best subjects were always literature, reading comprehension, writing, and grammar. In college, I majored in Sociology and went on to earn a certification as a child life specialist. Not only did I work clinically in this role, but also administratively. To me, proofreading comes naturally. I delight in improving my editing skills and reading successful writing blogs for fun.
Background and experience
I worked as a proofreader for the Emily Batson Art website, for a poet, Bethany Mootsey, and I edited various pediatric handouts and website pages for Mary Bridge Children's Hospital.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love honoring the writer's voice by making their written words impeccable. To polish up a piece of writing so that it is clear and consistent brings me deep satisfaction. I love the steady work that surrounds proofreading: its checklists, technicalities, overarching contexts, and sentence-by-sentence editing. It is a brain workout that keeps me sharp and gives me a major sense of accomplishment when I complete each project.
