Why I became an editor
I was torn between English and Art when choosing a major, but ultimately went with the decision to become a graphic designer. I enjoyed that job, but I never stopped reading voraciously and have always been fascinated with what makes the English language so unique and yet frustrating at times! Jumping into proofreading as a career makes so much sense. I'm thrilled that I get to help others improve upon their work with end results they can be proud of.
Background and experience
I’ve worked as a copywriter for TV Guide magazine, as a graphic designer for a megachurch, and, most recently, as a travel agent. Each of these jobs gave me experience in keeping track of every little detail. Each role had so many small moving parts, and it was essential to juggle them all.
Why I love proofreading and editing
It feels a bit like treasure hunting when I'm combing through a piece of writing looking for errors. Ultimately, there is the satisfaction of polishing up someone's writing so they can submit their work confidently. I love that proofreading allows me to help others shine through their writing.
