Expert copyeditor and proofreader skilled in refining research manuscripts, grant proposals, graduate theses, brochures, booklets, and more. Outstanding eye for detail and aptitude for making sentences flow. Especially talented at working with documents written by multi-language authors.
Please see my Portfolio on this site for a list of works I have edited.
Several biochemistry and social science manuscripts edited by me were accepted for publication.
A student who had their thesis edited by me received their master’s degree in May 2019, while their advisor described my work as “5 star.”
A consumer products company’s retail and trade catalogs were described as “more precise and polished than ever” after I edited them.
I edited two US government documents and an official said that “the turnaround was fantastic.”
