Favorite referencing style

My favorite style is APA referencing. I find it is the most natural style of referencing to work with.

Why I became an editor

I have been working as a PA for over 10 years, and as part of my role, I proofread a variety of documents for my company. I realized that proofreading is something I thoroughly enjoy and I wanted to learn more about doing it professionally. I discovered Knowadays and completed the Becoming A Proofreader Course, which has expanded my knowledge and compliments my existing experience.

Background and experience

I am currently working as a PA to the Chief Executive of a helicopter operator and have been in this role for 10 years. Prior to this, I worked for the Crofting Commission as an elections officer and then as a PA to the Convener. I have also been an events assistant for a chamber of commerce. My working life started in the childcare sector, where I worked as a nursery nurse and completed my NVQ training.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I love the excitement of opening a new document and getting to know the author’s own style. I believe this is important, as any changes I make, although necessary, should keep in line with the author's tone. I especially enjoy proofreading business and commercial documents and I have a lot of experience in these areas.

Favorite book:

Dark Matter by Michelle Paver

Hobbies:

In my spare time, I enjoy keeping active by walking my dog, doing yoga, and practicing archery.

Editing tips:

Once I have finished proofreading a document, I like to take a break, then go back and read it out loud to ensure the text flows well.
