Why this girl?

Because I don't let mistakes fly.

Basically, I read Eats, Shoots & Leaves in college and it all went downhill from there.

I've always had a passion for writing and adventure, so after graduating in 2012 with a degree in English and a focus in Secondary Education, I lived at the beach, worked in a brewery, saved up, got a passport, then moved halfway around the world to teach and live in Thailand. But you probably saw that last part coming.

Great things happen outside of your comfort zone. Great things are also born from vulnerability. Living in Southeast Asia forced to me cut myself open and see what was inside. What could I handle? What could I discover? Answer: A TON. And most importantly, teaching wasn't my thing. I returned to the US where I decided to start a new path to pursue my passions for writing, reading, and grammar more deeply, and so began my journey as a freelance copy editor. 

I had a few freelance projects to my name (visit my Portfolio to check all that noise out), then my big girl first job fell into my lap. I was as an e-commerce copywriter and web production assistant in the fashion industry. Next up, I was a content writer in the marketing department for a home decor and gift company. And most recently…I can’t say yet. But I’m thrilled about it.

That’s all by day. By night, I'm a freelance editor and proofreader. 

That brings us back to you!

The world is filled with typos; no need to further feed the beast.

Think of me as the missing link you need from just having copy, to having copy that's flawless.

I'm committed to helping people deliver their work in a way that helps them gain credibility, respect, and ultimately ...customers/followers/clicks/shares/likes/tweets/"like-and-such-as"...

Everyone could use a second set of eyes. Let me help you make an impression.

Whatcha got?

  • a blog?

  • a website?

  • a book?

  • a newsletter?

  • an article?

I got you.

And if you're not team Oxford comma, you're going to be.

Respectfully.
