Service Description

My background as an editor and educator has given me the tools to be an excellent editor, writer, researcher, and proofreader. I offer copyediting and proofreading work; copy and journalistic writing; research and interviewing; fact-checking; book, website, and magazine layout and design; and other related tasks. I am confident working with Microsoft Word and Excel, mailchimp, t4, and Adobe Suite. My grammar and knowledge of the Chicago style guide are impeccable. Though less expert, I am comfortable editing for MLA, AP, and APA guidelines as well. The bulk of my professional experience in more commercial work comes from my position as Assistant Editor at the Art Institute of Chicago. My responsibilities included copyediting/proofreading web content and newsletters, writing articles and web pages for the school, using content management systems to update the website, conducting interviews with alumni and students, and some light HTML coding and design work. My writing has been published in both academic and journalistic arenas. Links to some examples are included on my LinkedIn profile: https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=194530763
