Service Description

I can offer the highest quality copyediting and proofreading services to my clients. With several years' worth of experience working in marketing, I am capable of handling dynamic projects with tight deadlines. My employers consistently praise me for delivering outstanding results.

My methods are simple and grow out of my experiences working as a reference librarian: develop a great relationship through open communication to truly understand what my client needs; devote time and energy to a project to truly evaluate it by leveraging my writing and editing experience; deliver great results on time and (hopefully) cultivate future business from my clients.

I'm capable of offering soup to nuts services for a project:

Please don't hesitate to send me any questions you might have about my ability to work on your project! I look forward to working with you.
