Professional Experience

I am a freelancer with over 15 years of editorial experience. I currently work as a copy editor, fact-checker, and proofreader for both print and online publications. My published articles include interviews with writers such as Susan Brownmiller, Matthew Klam, and Susie Bright, and I have written on topics ranging from the Khmer Rouge to a classroom guide to children\\\'s literature to the need for a quality, government-funded, early childhood education. I have experience working for mass-market, political, and academic publications with a focus on psychology, science, economics, and sociology. I am accustomed to managing several projects at once and am capable of adhering to strict deadlines. I am a skilled researcher, and I work quickly and have a talent for troubleshooting.
