Writing is a challenge for both native and non-native users of English.
It's a big deal for anyone to put their precious thoughts into a stranger's hands. For me, each copyediting or proofreading job is a chance to reward a writer's trust with insightful, helpful feedback.
It's also fun!
As an academic editor, I work with brilliant thinkers and help them
tell their stories more clearly, cohesively, and accurately.
I've worked with clients from all walks of academic life:
students with undergraduate assignments and postgraduate theses; professional academics with research reports, journal articles, educational resources, fellowship applications, and book chapters; and instructional designers with course content.
Collaborating with writers, I enter and experience new worlds like those I encountered as an undergrad at "diversity university" (Wesleyan Class of 1992), as a Pacific-crossing sailor (1995 to 1998), and as a teacher of international students (2000 to 2020).
The writing I edit expands and enriches my understanding of
people, processes, systems, and the planet.
I aim to give my clients even more than I receive from being
a part of their academic journeys.
