Service Description

I am fast, I am methodical, and I am accurate. I can proofread and/or edit your book, project, or documents, even under a tight deadline. I understand this job is of utmost importance to you, and I will treat it as such.

Prior to teaching, I worked for a local publishing company beginning my tenure there as a proofreader and ending as a supervisor in the project management division. It was there that I learned the importance of attention to detail, client communication, and time management.
