Service Description

I offer comprehensive writing, editing, and proofreading services. I am a detail-oriented, focused, and pleasant companion on your journey to create the perfect article, book, blog post, story, or instructional course.
I have developed a wide range of skills over many years, including a refined understanding of English grammar and how to speak to a person's heart in grammatically correct ways, crafting words into poetry, yoga as a science and healing art, copyediting and content creation, social marketing and SEO optimization, and educational syllabus preparation. These skills combine to inform all my editing and writing work.

I primarily serve clients in the fields of yoga, health, wellness, fitness, nutrition, mindfulness, poetry, art, healing, ecological and organic lifestyles, relationships, and spirituality.

I have edited 200+ page books and shorter pieces for several clients, crafted over 200 articles and four e-books, and self-published two books of poetry. I have also taught over 1000 yoga classes in my 11 years as a professional teacher.

My favorite type of work is a blend of practical and inspirational, merging mind and heart. I offer helpful, uplifting, and marketable content that can include relevant SEO keywords if desired. I also understand the artistry possible in the English language, and can help elevate a piece to poetic greatness if that is your wish. My cornucopia of skills and experience allows me to serve a wide variety of websites, wellness...
