I am a board-certified editor in the life sciences. My experience ranges from editing in support of small businesses to providing editorial support for several United Nations organizations.
I worked for nearly a decade as the director of social media for a mid-sized public university in the United States, and I served as the editor-in-chief of a small-town newspaper for several years as well. I also have years of experience working as a freelance journalist for regional newspapers.
In editing a range of documents for the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), I have gained a good understanding of agricultural issues, especially as they relate to international relations. Through that work I also have honed my skills in editing English-language texts from non-native speakers of English from many countries, particularly in Europe and Central Asia. I also have extensive experience writing and editing for the United Nations Office for Project Services and the United Nations Development Programme.
Originally from the United States of America, I earned a master’s degree in communication and media in Budapest, Hungary, and I lived for long enough in Mexico to have acquired a working understanding of Spanish.
I have edited published academic texts and reports for universities in Albania and Serbia, and I have several years of university-level teaching experience as an adjunct professor of journalism. I enjoy editing Christian works, particularly ones focused on theology and doctrine, and I excel at editing CVs and resumes for content, clarity and grammar.
I look forward to discussing your project!
