Professional Experience

Skillful, thoughtful, experienced copy editor/proofreader. I combine a keen eye for typos and grammatical correctness with a sensitive ear for graceful prose and nuance. I’m supremely flexible and a quick study: I’ll listen to your needs and return your job on time and shipshape. I’ve been a copy chief, copy editor and fact checker for leading New York-based literary and lifestyle publications, both print and online, as well as a freelancer in Paris. Most recently I became a licensed veterinary technician. In sum, I am fluent not only in French but also in medical/scientific vocabulary. And my years on staff at publications like the New Yorker and Town & Country mean that I’m adept at the language of literary criticism, architecture and interior design.
