About me

With my extensive experience in editing formal documents and my versatility in working across different fields, I am an excellent fit for a variety of editing roles.

As a freelance editor with over 13 years of experience, I have edited a wide range of materials, including academic papers, marketing materials, and business publications. Each of these projects required a different level of writing and editing. I have worked with academic authors who aimed for everything between a conversational journal article and a formal dissertation.

I highly proficient in both Microsoft Office and Adobe Suites as an editor and graphic designer. During my tenure as a Book Editor at ClickFunnels, I developed time-saving Word macros, a house style guide for PerfectIt, and a database of TextExpander snippets to streamline the editing process.

I am confident that my skills, experience, and dedication to producing high-quality work make me an excellent candidate for an editor role at your company. I am adept at handling high volumes of work and meeting tight deadlines without compromising quality. I am self-motivated and can work independently, shifting priorities as needed, while maintaining a strong commitment to collaboration and teamwork.
