Service Description

I am a wellness writer, technical editor, line editor, copy editor, and certified teacher. I have a degree in English (concentration in writing) and credentials from the American Dietetic Association. I am also an avid yoga practitioner and plan to complete a yoga teacher training in the fall.

My services include writing web content, blogs posts, newsletters, press releases and academic (instructional) content. I also edit and proofread both fiction and nonfiction pieces for professional clients and students. I edit web content, magazine articles, full-length book manuscripts, sales copy, and more. I can edit to Chicago style, AP style, or any house style. My technical editing experience includes adapting U.S. reports for an international audience.

My academic background enables me to conduct research in new areas with ease. I am able to write intelligently on a variety of topics in whatever voice a project requires.
