My passion for the English language and the written word has an extensive history, and ranges from perfect test scores to newsletter and book editing to research pieces. Currently, I am taking that passion to the next level as I pursue a Master's degree in English.

In high school, I received a perfect 800 on my SAT II Wrtiing subject test, and the highest possible score (5) on my AP English Exam; at my local community college, I was part of the newspaper team, both as a contributing writer and as an editor / proofreader. After...

Service Description

My primary goal is to take your words and make them shine. I provide a fresh, outside perspective on your writing and the tips, corrections, and attention to detail necessary to make your writing pop and give it that WOW factor.

Students: In addition to more "traditional" forms of literature, my Master's program also incorporated film studies, with an emphasis on horror / slashers. I am comfortable writing in or assisting you with both more traditional literary forms as well as film.

Transcription clients, I pride myself on my good ear, attention to detail, and accuracy. All work is proofed prior to submission. At this time, my preference is for general transcription or legal jobs.

To ensure each client receives the time and attention he or she deserves, I will not take more than two jobs concurrently; each client will receive the full focus and dedication necessary to bring his or her project to successful completion.
