Overview

I have extensive experience as a writer and editor. During law school, I coauthored part of a text book on psychiatric and psychological evidence with a professor. After law school, I worked as a writer and editor for a publishing house in Houston, TX. At the publishing house, I created and updated several book chapters. I was responsible for copyediting interns' work. Less than 8 months after I was hired, I was promoted to Assistant Managing Editor for one of the company's main books.

Service Description

As an English major during my undergraduate studies, I focused on both creative and technical writing. I completed a creative writing honors thesis, and graduated from the honors program. I learned to write grants and project proposals, as well as emotive poetry and short stories.

When I worked as a legal editor, I was responsible for drafting, revising, and copyediting several books. I learned the importance of writing a legal document in clear and concise language. As a legal editor, I worked to put legal terms and phrases into "plain English."

I work well with those who are not native English speakers. I am especially skilled at working with someone who is Japanese, as that is my grandmother's native tongue.

In my spare time, I like to read, travel, hike, and spend time with my husband and our dog. I also run marathons and half marathons for charity.
