A member of ACES (the American Copy Editors Society), Publishers Marketplace, and Word Weavers International, Inc.

What to Expect:

I like metaphors. So I’ll call myself the Whole Foods or Fresh Market of editors. No Walmart in these parts.

What does this mean?

It means quality is of utmost importance, and I provide a holistic experience with each client project.

This is evidenced by:
-Personalized attention and sensitivity
-Thorough feedback packed with meaty suggestions and resources
-An additional market-savvy perspective that seeks to elevate your work to its best potential
-A roster of long-term, repeat clients

As a writer myself, I understand how connected we are to our pieces, and I will do my best to provide kind yet quality, unbiased work.

Of note: Having edited 100+ online courses for the Savannah College of Art and Design, I bring a fresh, digital perspective to the books I edit.

I will admit, thorough and expressive are two qualities I can’t shake, so meaty feedback and emails are likely. I do my best to streamline communication, however, and organize feedback for easy readability.

As someone who provides such close, holistic attention to each project, I need the same commitment from clients to their work, which means reading my correspondence and following their deadlines as well.

If you’re looking to take your work to the next level, let’s talk!

Educational Publishers:
My experience teaching, creating, and editing print and online curriculum and textbooks has made me a seasoned candidate for educational publishing projects as well.
