Favorite referencing style
I find IEEE very intuitive and appreciate how the in-text citations don’t disrupt the flow of the document.
Why I became an editor
As a former educator (both in public and homeschool), I have spent many hours helping others improve their writing. I have always loved both reading and writing and try to find time each day for a little of both. One of my dreams is become a published author. Working as a proofreader enables me to use my experience in assisting others with their writing to help them achieve their goals.
Background and experience
I am a former educator with 25 years' experience, I am a small business owner, and I design and write educational materials for elementary through high school students.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I enjoy proofreading because of my great love of reading and writing. It is a pleasure to see a piece of writing take shape to be its best self. Making a piece of writing error free enables the author’s meaning to shine through without distractions. It is a joy to be a part of that process.
I am such an avid reader, it is impossible for me to choose only one. I especially enjoy Edward Rutherfurd's historical novels.
I am an avid exerciser, reader, and writer. I also love fiber art such as embroidery and weaving.
I like to read a document several times before I make any corrections or changes to make sure that I understand the author’s meaning. When I finish proofreading, I always check again to ensure that I haven’t missed anything.
