Favorite referencing style

I like APA. It's very logical to me.

Why I became an editor

I was a graphic designer in my first career. My goal was to tell a story in as perfect and eye-catching a manner as I could. From retail advertisements about software and computers to books on Hawaiian culture, I wanted the best version of that story told. My next career path led me to reviewing copy and artwork before it went to print. I enjoyed helping someone else tell their best version of a story. Becoming a proofreader is the ideal way for me to continue doing just that.

Background and experience

I worked as an illustrator/designer of educational materials at The Kamehameha Schools in Hawaii, as a senior graphic designer at Associated Students UCLA in Los Angeles, and as an art director and project manager at Jane Fonda Health & Fitness in Santa Monica. In each of these positions, I developed and participated in the proofreading and review process. In Portland, I became a print production manager. There, I had the opportunity to work with many notable companies.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I love helping people tell the best story they can, no matter the subject. I can do that best by using my skills as a proofreader.

Favorite book:

My favorite book is A Journey to Matecumbe by Robert Lewis Taylor.

Hobbies:

I love everything about horses, and I particularly like to groom them. There are a lot of horses in my area, so I schedule "spa days" with their owners.

Editing tips:

If there are references, I print out the reference list or bibliography and go through the document looking for the citations to make sure there are no inconsistencies.
