Service Description

I am a dedicated copyeditor with a focus on light editing to fix the grammatical mechanics of a piece. I work towards ensuring a smooth flow through copy in order to allow readers to comfortably understand what they are reading. Most of my editing occurs in Microsoft Word using the review/track changes feature to allow clients to view and accept or reject the edits I have made.

In addition to my editing skills, I work hard to maintain large databases, in order to keep them up to date as well as running smooth. For example, I am currently editing and updating an MSDS database that contains over 4,000 chemicals. In the United States, OSHA requires all companies to keep a Material Safety Data Sheet for every chemical used in the course of business to ensure employee safety. After being given an inventory of all chemical's on a company's property, I collect the appropriate paperwork and organize the files into an easily searchable format, allowing the company to comply with OSHA's standards.
