Service Description

I have six years of experience creating, editing, and fact-checking online and print content for an education non-profit in San Antonio, Texas.

I can provide a range of editorial services, ranging from proofreading to editing for content. I also offer fact-checking, indexing, and transcription. Take a look at the skill scores in my profile and the copy editing sample in my portfolio for a better idea of what I can do!

The Chicago Manual of Style and Webster's Collegiate Dictionary are my guidebooks of choice, although I'd be happy to adhere to other styles and formats as requested.

I use Track Changes in Microsoft Word to indicate suggested edits. I am also open to marking documents with the Comment Tool in Adobe Reader or using LaTeX for more technical documents.
