Professional Info

Bio
I am a freelance proofreader, copy editor, and authenticity reader. I’ve worked in the healthcare field for nearly twenty years. For about 10 of those years, I worked in progressive leadership and consulting roles. In these roles, I wrote and edited program plans, regulatory reports, slide decks, policies, newsletter articles, business proposals, executive summaries, annual reports, health promotion materials, and more. Prior to that, I worked in public health research, where I worked on academic research studies, writing and editing related documents. I have also worked in disability and occupational health examination services reviewing medical reports for quality assurance. I earned a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree, with a specialization in Health Promotion and Behavioral Science, from San Diego State University and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from UC San Diego Rady School of Management. I proofread and copyedit healthcare articles, books, medical-legal reports, academic manuscripts, dissertations, websites, blogs, business plans, executive reports, marketing materials, and related nonfiction documents. And I provide authenticity reading services for a variety of materials based on my lived experiences as a Mexican American female. I am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA) and the Professional Editors Network (PEN). I serve as co-coordinator of the EFA Diversity Initiative Welcome Program, which provides targeted support for editors from historically underrepresented backgrounds.
