Favorite referencing style

APA; it's the one I'm most familiar with.

Why I became an editor

I have a background in music and art, including a fair amount of grant writing. When working with other artists on proposals, I often end up with the editing and proofreading role, which I find very satisfying and rewarding, especially when we get the grants.
Now, as an education assistant, I often work with students on essay writing; I love helping them shape their ideas into concise sentences and paragraphs.
These experiences led me to pursue a career in proofreading and editing.

Why I love proofreading and editing

The rules we follow in the English language have always fascinated me, and as a keen rule follower, I get great satisfaction in making sure everything is in order. I love proofreading because it keeps my mind working and allows me to hone my skills as a writer.

Favorite book:

Unnamable by Samuel Beckett.

Hobbies:

When I'm not proofreading, I enjoy spending time with my kids, hiking with my dog, playing piano, baking bread, or spending time in the garden.

Editing tips:

I often read documents out loud as I'm going through them. This gives me an aural and visual perspective while helping me stay focused on each line.
