Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

I graduated from the College of St. Catherine with a bachelor's degree in speech communication and philosophy. I also got my certificate as a copyeditor from University of San Diego. I have completed several different copyediting tests and assignments, which I have found to be of great experience. Public speaking, writing, and editing are my passions. Ever since my early school days, I have enjoyed activities in spelling, grammar, and punctuation. I believe that it is necessary to perfect all of that in professionally written work.

Service Description

I am a certified copyeditor, and am able to proofread on all levels. I believe that it is necessary to perfect spelling, grammar, and punctuation, in order to create well-written work. I perform heavy editing for my clients, and work to perfect these skills. I also like to keep facts accurate, and take the time to research, if it is necessary. I believe, too, that it is important to keep all lines of communication open. I make sure my clients and I are always on the same page before finalizing anything. I also want clients to feel free to ask me any questions, and I am prompt in providing answers.
