Overview

I am a native English speaker with a BA in Linguistics from Western Washington University with minors in Spanish and English Linguistics. I have just completed a proofreading course through the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and earned a CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages issued by Cambridge) at International House Dublin. I have a passion for clear, accurate, and concise language. Please contact me if you have a proofreading or writing job and you will receive quality work at a competitive price.
