I have 20+ years in the publishing industry as a copy writer, copy editor and proofreader. I have experience with creating and polishing copy for a variety of products: including but not limited to brochures, papers, studies, novels, pamphlets, magazine articles, film scripts, and short stories. I have worked with Thomas Nelson (now Harper Collins Christian Publishing), Fox Faith, FamilyLife Today (a division of Cru ministries), and a number of other individuals in freelance editing and proofreading projects.

My strengths lie in proofreading and catching the mistakes often overlooked or missed by others. If you need someone to make sure your publication is error-free and ready to be seen by the harshest of critics, I have the eyes and attention to detail you will want to give your project before delivery to its final destination. I can assure you a quick turnaround and a product ready for excellence. I can also assist in helping students navigate proofreading marks and ascribing to MLA, APA, and Chicago or AP style as is applicable for their respective assignments.

My concentration while at University was in Literature. While my favorite is children's literature, I am also proficient in American Literature and British Literature. My teenage children are currently in high school and middle school respectively, and they are homeschooling. This keeps my skills and familiarity with various forms of literature fresh and on point.
