Hi, I’m Allison! I love meeting new people and helping them deliver flawless, effective copy – no matter what shape it takes.
I have over 10 years of experience editing in health and medical communications, including creative agencies working with pharma, peer-reviewed journals, and consumer publications. I’m an AMA style expert, and I’m certified by the Board of Editors in Life Sciences and the American Medical Writers Association. But I’m not only a meticulous line editor; my background as a journalist and writer means you can also rely on me for thoughtful suggestions to make your copy as concise and influential as possible.
Please visit my website to see some of the clients and publications that I have supported.
My key competencies are as follows: proofreading materials for grammar and accuracy (fact checking, spelling, punctuation, etc); enforcing AMA, house, and client style guidelines; performing copyediting/line-editing, including correcting errors and making thoughtful suggestions and queries to improve content quality; using page markup tools in Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Word; assisting with submission of documents into client promotional review systems, including reference checking and annotations; and working collaboratively across multidisciplinary teams to exceed project expectations on tight deadlines.
I look forward to meeting you and making your copy shine!
