  Nancy E. Elgin
Professional/Personal Overview
  I'm thorough, good, and reliable, and I adapt quickly to multiple styles. My dad was a copy editor, so whether you believe nature or nurture is most important, I've got it covered. I prefer to work from home with the cats, but will gladly accept in-house assignments in New York City. I have experience with nonfiction and fiction. I know Chicago style very well, but also work in AP, AMA, APA, and multiple custom styles.
