Favorite referencing style

I am most comfortable with MLA referencing, simply because I have the most experience with that style.

Why I became an editor

I have worked in advertising/marketing for several years. I loved writing ad copy the most, although my career opportunities at the time led me in a different direction.

While I loved working in the office, my family responsibilities increased over time, and I decided to stay home. Proofreading affords me the opportunity to be home and available to my family in addition to lending a helping hand to others by providing quality assurance on their personal and/or professional writing.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I am a self-proclaimed perfectionist, and I love to help people be their best. I always loved to write in college, and the rules of grammar have always interested me. I know that writing doesn't always come easy to everyone, so I feel joy knowing that I can help others reach their personal goals in some way.

Favorite book:

The book I come back to and read again and again is Lord of the Flies by William Golding. I actually also love to read short stories. Shirley Jackson's The Lottery gives me shivers.


I love to plan events and activities for my children and their friends, hopefully building an everlasting abundance of fun memories and personal joy.

Editing tips:

The first read is to catch minor spelling and punctuation errors. The second is to catch larger errors/mechanics. The third and final time, I read the document in reverse to find any additional errors.
