Professional Experience

Seeking copy editing and proofreading jobs. A versatile writer and editor with 15 years of experience in business, academic, and non-profit environments, I see the big picture and synthesize disparate elements to provide engaging and coherent copy. I thrive where the work is complex, current, and challenging, where I can dive into research, inhabit a voice, and get particular with details. Comfortable in a range of modes, I have created content, edited, and proofread everything from marketing collateral and blogs to scholarly texts and white papers. I have also designed courses and taught literature and writing at the university level, which has given me a strong foundation of knowledge and facility in communicating ideas to a range of audiences.
