Overview

During my 12-year career as a newspaper editor and reporter, I collected significant proofreading and copy editing experience.

Those skills were further enhanced during my time as a publications assistant at a small publishing company. I was the primary proofreader at a place where history books are produced.

In addition, I am an experienced writer, and my work has won newspaper association awards in years past.

The three things I have described make a valuable combination of skills and experience that can benefit any project.

Service Description

Since earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications (with emphasis in Journalism), I have worked as a reporter and editor at five different newspapers.

At each location my duties have included proofreading and copy editing. Along the way I have become a fast and accurate typist as well (53 wpm).

In addition to my work in the newsrooms and local communities I have served, my work history features nearly two years at a small publishing company. One of my duties has been to edit the individual work projects and "clean up" the materials the company uses to communicate with its customers.

When looking for a proofreader or copy editor, there is no doubt you want someone who is experienced. I believe the 14 years I have worked in the newspaper and publishing industries make me exactly that type of person.
