Favorite referencing style
APA is my favorite referencing style because I find it the simplest to work with.
Why I became an editor
Even as a teenager, my peers would often ask me to proofread their essays. This was never a bother. My long-time love of editing led me to pursue it as a career. I studied English in university to improve my writing skills. I studied philosophy to sharpen my attention to detail. All the while, I provided editing help to any of my peers who asked for it, building up a specialized knowledge of grammar’s finer points. I hope to apply all this knowledge as I work to make your writing shine.
Background and experience
Previously, I worked as an intern editor for the Center for Research on Vermont (CRVT). I worked to collect content and write stories for the CRVT newsletter, which went out roughly twice a month to subscribers via email. I also edited content written by other interns, which went into the newsletter.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love proofreading, not only for the satisfaction of bringing out the best in a piece of text, but also because it allows me to learn new things. Proofreading a variety of subjects means getting to read about things I may never have thought to read about otherwise. Continuing to learn about many different things simply makes you a more balanced human being.
