Professional Info

Bio
I have over 20 years of editorial experience working in business-to-consumer and business-to-business environments including, small, mid-sized and Fortune 500 companies, in various industries, from publishing, investment management, pharmaceutical, financial services, utility, to retail. I specialize in all things nonfiction. In my work as a freelance editorial consultant, I have had the wonderful opportunity to provide strategic copy development and branding and/or editorial insight for a broad base of clients ranging from major educational institutions to small business startups. Much of my freelance work recently has been copy editing fiction and non-fiction books on a wide range of topics, including: memoirs, parenting, entrepreneurship, health/wellness, estate planning, etc. I also have been working with companies to edit their business collateral. I believe that a copy editor and proofreader are the last line of defense... ensuring all copy a writer creates is accurate, consistent and supports the writer’s intended message and voice. My reputation as a copy editor supports the qualities listed above. And my success is based on that skill set, but focused on the ability to accomplish those goals in deadline-driven environments, with assurance and grace.
