Lauryn Smith du Toit
I’m an editor based in the San Francisco Bay Area with over 8 years of experience (predominantly developmental editing, copy editing, and proofreading for news and academic outlets). I have extensive familiarity with editing high-stakes medical content and am comfortable with all of the life sciences and environmental subjects.
I am practiced in AP, APA, MLA, AMA, and CM0S and have also followed multiple in-house style guides. My educational background is in journalism, English, biology, and library and information sciences.
In my free time, I manage the library at a local history museum, provide volunteer editing services for the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy, and perform curatorial tasks for the Invertebrate Zoology and Geology Department at the California Academy of Sciences.
