Service Description

Although I'm young, I have gained a lot of experience over the last few years, and believe that my background in Classics and knowledge of Latin and Ancient Greek provide me with a unique and detailed perspective on writing and editing.
As a freelance I have edited several novels, in addition to working on legal articles being prepared for publication, and proofreading all the slides and documents for an online cybersecurity curriculum.
At the American Horticultural Society, I proofread each page of the magazine (a bimonthly, called The American Gardener) in print--we looked at each page 3 or 4 times. This job in particular taught me that editing often needs to take into consideration layout and space available. I have been able to put the skills I learned here to work as I develop my freelance career.
All of my editing work has taught me to be conscious of the voice and vision of the writer, no matter what type of text is in question, and to always work toward a goal of 100% error free writing that truly communicates between the writer and reader.
