Service Description

As an academic writer, I create lesson plans, curriculum documents, worksheets, professional papers and other materials according to specification. I have over a decade of experience teaching at the high school level and am experienced in creating content for a variety of subjects.

As a proofreader and editor, I provide proofreading and comprehensive editing services to check for spelling, grammar, sentence structure, style guide conformity, references, clarity, and more. I help my clients complete projects to the highest standard. I have a great deal of experience editing theses and dissertations, professional papers for academic journals, articles, and more.

As a blogger and copywriter, I create compelling copy for a variety of businesses, blogs, online magazines, and other publications. I create newsletters, content for blogs and social media sites, sales copy, articles for SEO purposes, eBooks, and any other writing project, big or small. I specialize in education, food, travel, and product information articles, but also have experience in other niches.

I run two blogs, Celiac Baby! and Kat's Book Buzz, and have contributed to a number of online blogs and publications, including A Sweet Life, The Phur Seasons, Au Pair Ads, and W.I.T.T.S. Educational Consulting.
