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 completed several intensive editing classes, recently earned UCSD's Specialized Certificate in Copyediting, and am currently taking book indexing courses at UC Berkeley.
Organization, efficiency, attention to detail, and dependability are crucial skills for a copy editor, and are among my strengths. I've edited 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.
My references attest to my determination to accept nothing but perfection in my work. I take pride in helping my clients to produce the most streamlined and professional work possible.
I'm not happy unless you are happy.
Born and bred a California girl currently residing with my family not too far from the Mexican border, I’m familiar with common US customs as well as the Latino culture.
I do not read or edit erotica, horror, political, religious, or supernatural material.
