Although I have an accounting degree, the written word is my first love. I was hooked from the time I completed a Writer’s Digest writing course long ago, but other things got in the way. Over the years I realized I was a “word nerd” and would make a great proofreader or an editor.
 
You will see my references attest to my determination to accept nothing but perfection in my work. I take pride in producing the most streamlined, easily accessible, and informative product possible. Employing Chicago, AP, APA, and MLA manuals of style, or your house style, I will make sure your piece is consistent. Being very organized, efficient, detail-oriented and dependable are crucial skills for a copy editor, and are my strengths. Over the past few years, I've edited everything from fiction, nonfiction, and blogs, to cookbooks, theses, entertainment/travel reviews, and resumes.
 
I have a 15-year background in business, primarily banking and finance, but also have experience in real estate, property management, and some in the legal field. Born and bred a California girl not too far from the Mexican border, I’m quite familiar with all common U.S. customs and practices and the Latino culture.
 
With a flexible schedule, I’m able to accept and successfully accomplish just about any project quickly and efficiently.
