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 course long ago, but other things got in the way. I have a 15-year background in business, primarily banking and finance, but also have experience in real estate and property management. Over the years, colleagues called me a “word nerd” but now I have fully embraced it!
I do not edit erotica, horror, religious, supernatural, or political material.
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 resumes, to motivational & D.I.Y. books, entertainment & travel reviews, and hundreds of presentations for a large, well-known web service conference.
Employing the style guide of your choice, I will ensure your piece shines.

I'm not happy unless you are happy.
Having been born and bred a California girl and currently residing with my family not too far from the Mexican border, I’m quite familiar with all common U.S. customs and practices and the Latino culture.
