Some credentials: I have a journalism diploma, degrees in English literature, a background in writing instruction, and over 15 years of professional in-house and freelance editing experience. I have been working with words and writers for most of my life, and I love helping writers polish documents, untangle complex sentences, and clarify meaning.

I edit content for both print and online media, and I work with both publishers and individual authors.

When I am not editing, I also work as an online writing tutor, where I coach adult learners through the main stages of the writing process: planning and outlining, drafting, and revising.

I am professional, dependable, meticulous, and cheerful. When you work with me, you get expert attention to the areas where your document needs the most help — whether these are big-picture structural concerns or finer details of sentence mechanics and style. I will deliver a polished and precise product on schedule, help you meet your deadlines, and ensure that your message is presented in the best possible light.

I’ve been told I’m a tiny bit persnickety — but just enough to make sure the words are clean and clear!
