Service Description

I have extensive background in copywriting, editing, proofreading, and designing content specifically for the web. In my role at the magazine, I regularly did large amounts of research to prepare for interviews on a variety of topics, and my interview subjects have included Robert Kennedy Jr., humorist Dave Barry, legendary mountaineer Reinhold Messner, Dr. Bernie Siegel, Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman, musician Michael Franti, and many more. As a book and magazine editor, I have also developed a critical eye for content flow, consistency, and what can - and needs to be - cut out for the sake of clarity.

As a Language Arts/E.S.L. teacher for the past 13 years, I have also had extensive experience editing academic papers and assisting non-native English speakers with their grammar, punctuation and sentence structure.
