About Me

I am an experienced copy editor with expertise in a broad range of areas, including academia, journalism, law, nonprofit communications, business, and others. A lifelong grammar nerd, I have always been passionate about the written word. This has translated into years of successful experience turning rough drafts into complete, well-crafted pieces of writing. See my portfolio for some examples of my work.
