Working With Me

Your work is your baby. You’ve put your heart, blood, sweat, and tears into words for others to read. As an editor, I will help you present your best self in your work every time by providing high-quality proofreading and editing services that will polish your words and thoughts while maintaining your voice.

I will ensure that your copy is grammatically correct, word choice is appropriate, and narrative flow is smooth and consistent. The end result is refined work that clearly conveys your thoughts to your readers.

I’m sure you’ve read your words over and over and over, so let me be the fresh set of eyes you need before presenting your work to the world. I look forward to working with you!
