Hello there.
Thanks for stopping by!

Growing up surrounded by books,
I was an avid reader from an early age,
which created a love affair with the written word,
continuing long into adulthood.

Ever since I can remember, I have noticed errors in the texts I read,
and there were many times when my mind would whirl trying to amend
- or edit, as I now know it to be! - certain phrases or sentence structures,
which I was convinced would work better and improve the text.

As a creative writer myself, I understand the importance of finding
and using the correct words, and making sure the text is coming
across in the best possible light.

I am passionate about words and spelling, and am happiest
reading or writing. I have always been enthusiastic about
the English language, and I have channelled this into my career
as a proofreader and copy-editor.

SKILLS

My range of skills derived from university, volunteering roles
and various Hospitality-based jobs
means I can apply myself to most situations.

They have also ensured that I can deliver
high levels of customer care,
whilst working quickly and efficiently
under pressure, and to a tight deadline.

eye for detail and picked up

QUALIFICATIONS

After many years in Hospitality, I felt ready for a change and a fresh challenge.
I studied for a Diploma in Proofreading and Editing
from the College of Media and Publishing,
graduating with a Distinction.

I am also an Entry-Level member of
the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP),
who offer support, training and guidance
to everyone in the editing industry.

I am excited by the challenges presented by this new chapter in my life!


Get in touch.
I'd love to hear from you!
