Professional Experience

A freelance copy editor and fact checker since 2010, I have extensive experience editing content for both online and print media. Projects I have worked on recently include “Ready, Set, Baby!”, a parenting guidebook designed for the iPad, “Cooking in Heels,” a cookbook including 40 recipes, and a high school world history program. As an editor I am skilled at paying attention to detail while keeping an eye on the big picture – editing for flow, style, and consistency. Accustomed to working remotely, I am quick to learn new software applications and excellent at meeting deadlines. I also have professional knowledge of both Chicago and AP style.
