Overview

I am an editor, proofreader, and copy writer who's able to bring your written material to a higher level, magnifying its effect on your intended audience. In an environment of social media and online communication, details like grammar, punctuation, and word choice are often overlooked. These basic qualities, however, are critically important when you desire your words to create an impact. Let me help you say what you'd like to say, in a cost-effective and timely manner.

Service Description

I offer accurate, creative, detail-oriented editing, proofreading, and copy writing services, including research if needed. My past experience in both copy editing and coordinating college textbooks for Merrill Publishing provided insight into the multiple tasks involved with producing high-quality material that effectively reaches a wide audience. I am familiar with meeting the needs of authors, organizing their words to help them more powerfully convey their ideas. I am effective and organized, and my goal is to provide you with a quality product in a prompt time frame.

More recently I have been using my time to educate my five children, allowing me to hone my skills in communication, research, scheduling, and teaching. I try to adapt quickly by using roadblocks to find new and better ways to do something. I look forward to working with you on your project!
