Service Description

I have loved words since I was a child when I invented my own lexicon (to the vexation of my poor parents). I was always an honors student in English in High school and was inducted into the English Honors Society in College.

My writing ability was always something I kept to myself until i became a teacher, and I have been leading young people through the writing process ever since. I have been proofreading, editing and revising as a teacher for over fifteen years now.

In 2002 I became a fellow of The National Writing Project; and as such I have written and edited articles on the connections between reading and writing in education. I have also taught The Maine Writing Young Author's Camp, during which time I edited student submissions to an annual anthology.

My proofreading and editing skills are not limited to the academic environment. I have edited articles, and newsletters for community publications; and I have written press releases and revised brochures for friends starting their own businesses.

I am dependable, efficient, detail oriented, and I love what I do. Nothing satisfies me more than transforming an ordinary piece of writing into a memorable gem.
