Overview

Reliable, personable and highly motivated professional with over ten years’ experience in advanced administrative roles.

For two years I was employed as an editor and proofreader for a UK-based publishing company, leaving the role only as I moved overseas. I am keen to continue using the skills gained through my experience to assist projects on a freelance basis, where I am able to commit wholeheartedly to the work I take on.

Quality and integrity are paramount to my work ethic, beating quantity every time.
