In 2017, Meisha began to forge a new path as she obtained a post-baccalaureate certification in copy editing from the University of California, Berkeley. In the editorial program, she mastered the proper use of grammar and syntax—learning how to edit prose for a wide range of audiences. This experience propelled her to ultimately pursue her career in editing. While a global pandemic may have hindered some, for Meisha it served as the backdrop to put her ambitions into motion—she took a risk and launched her editorial business, Pen2Paper Editorial, in April of 2020.

In just a short time, Meisha has aided creatives in finding and refining their voices and has partnered with notable powerhouses such as Penguin Random House and The Crown Publishing Group. In a world inundated with written words, Meisha is driven to provide her clients with an outlet to present themselves in a way that is professional, authentic, and powerful.
