Service Description

Editing and proofreading for any number of finished products, with AP and Chicago style options: professional correspondence, fiction drafts, nonfiction articles, resume clarification and any project requiring strict attention to detail. Continuing education to expand into document and web design.

During my college career, I worked with both internal and external clients. I served as group leader for a project that required restructuring information for clarity and cohesion, client follow-up and setting milestone tasks. I have also worked to design handouts, brochures and signage using working knowledge of InDesign.

Currently, I work at an independent news and entertainment weekly, City Pages, copy editing, fact-checking, writing entertainment articles and completing other administrative tasks.
