Favorite referencing style
CMOS is my favorite referencing style because it's where I started. This was before I was aware that there would be so many different options.
Why I became an editor
I am a scientist by trade and a word-nerd at heart. In an effort to pursue both of my passions, I found that proofreading and editing can be a place where science meets reading and writing. That's the beauty of writing—if done well, it can be anything.
Background and experience
I have been a scientist for ten years, working in both field and laboratory environments. Over the years, I developed an affinity for working with technical documents. I have experience writing and editing SOPs, training manuals, and technical reports.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love that writing can be anything. It can be a dense tome of information, and it can be a light, whimsical escape. And the people behind the writing are just as diverse. I love being the person quietly working in the background to help each piece of writing shine.
