Professional Experience

A well-rounded editorial freelancer specializing in copyediting, proofreading, and permission work. A BA in language and literature, copyediting certificate from Mediabistro, and working for a large academic publisher has given me a fantastic basis for my freelance work. I have worked on textbooks (engineering, geography, geology, and more), lifestyle websites, review websites, and business documents in varying capacities.
