About Pendley's Pro Editing

"Word Nerd"


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 fittingly called me a “word nerd.” I've taken several intensive editing classes, earned UCSD's Specialized Certificate in Copyediting, and have completed UC Berkeley's course Indexing: Theory and Application.

Skills & Experience


Organization, efficiency, attention to detail, and dependability are crucial skills for a copy editor/indexer and are among my strengths. I've worked on everything from daily local news, educational workbooks, and resumes, to self-improvement books, B2B, and hundreds of presentations for AWS (Amazon Web Services) re:Invent conferences. Employing the style guide of your choice, I will ensure your piece shines.


I do not read, or edit erotica, horror, political, religious, or supernatural material.

I'm not happy unless you are happy.
