Favorite referencing style

I have utilized both APA and MLA most frequently and I do not have a preference for one over the other.

Why I became an editor

As a graphic designer and voracious reader, my passion for the written word has led me to a career in copy editing and proofreading. Each new assignment is an opportunity to delve into another’s thought process, dissect their ideas into written realities, and help their work best engage and impact the targeted audience. Most recently, I worked as a graphic designer in various environments: as a freelancer, at an advertising agency, and in-house at a technology company.

Background and experience

As a freelance copy editor, my role is to ensure that your text is clear, readable, and error-free. I am an avid reader with a varied background in graphic design, marketing, and scientific research—making me uniquely suited to lend my expertise to a variety of projects. I've co-authored and edited scientific research papers, proofread and formatted numerous graphic design projects, written and edited websites and social media posts, and have edited for an online community news source.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I absolutely love tackling a new proofreading or editing project. The feeling I get when I begin a new project is akin to starting a new jigsaw puzzle or solving a Wordle. When I look back over my varied work experience, I realize the common thread that runs through all of my occupations is that they all required the utmost attention to detail and precision.
