Overview

I have been educated at the Ivy-League level as a writer and lawyer. I am on leave from the legal profession to start a family, but am available for freelance writing and editing work. I bring the same exacting standards to my freelance work that I demand in my legal briefs and memos, but I also offer the creativity and versatility developed in my pre-law writing training.

Service Description

My diverse writing and editing experience includes not only legal writing, but also freelance editing for international marketing materials, academic journals, and grant proposals. I have considerable experience editing and proofreading international materials translated into English, including articles, advertisements, and investment pitches. I have written and edited materials for a wide range industries: representative examples include a Japanese tea exporter, a German technology company, and a U.S. museum focusing on early childhood education.

I give my clients meticulous attention, and limit the number of jobs I take at a time to ensure that I can do so. I make it my priority to be responsive to my clients' needs and to communicate with them carefully throughout the life of a project..
