Need an experienced copyeditor or proofreader to tackle your next project? I have an eye for detail and consistency that will make your text cleaner, easier to understand, and error-free. My regular projects include the monthly inflight magazines for a major U.S. airline and its regional carrier, children's book and magazine authors, and nonprofit promotional materials. As a graduate of the University of Washington's Editing Certificate Program and years volunteering with the Northwest Editor's Guild, I am ready to handle nearly any project. I know Chicago, AP, and various tech styles, and can adapt to or create project style guides unique to your project.

Make your writing better with proper spelling, grammar, consistency, voice, and adherence to your chosen style guide.
Line (Substantive) Editing
A step above copyediting, with focus on making your writing flow from paragraph to paragraph, unifying the whole document.
Areas of Expertise
There is nothing worse for an author than getting a draft returned that is full of corrections you don't understand or agree with. I like to maintain open communication with authors and explain why I suggest certain changes.
