CV

Professional Summary

When it comes to work, I'm a perfectionist & I have a strong work ethic.

 

The dynamic I've enjoyed most throughout my career is leading and being a part of teams who do technical editing, copyediting, & proofreading.

I have this unique ability to stay focused amidst chaos and noise, making it easy to work anywhere: in a dedicated office or remotely.

I thrive in a fast-paced, deadline-driven work environment — and my review style is speedy and meticulous.

I have no ego and a thick skin when it comes to feedback. And I will literally edit anything in front of me, be it a restaurant menu, a sign at the gas station, a museum brochure... nothing is safe from my critique.
