I offer copyediting and proofreading services to nonfiction writers and businesses who want to polish their articles, essays, marketing materials, and presentations.


You focus on the world.
I'll focus on the words.

My services include:

  • Proofreading

  • Copyediting

  • Line edits

  • Text localization


I graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in English literature and a minor in professional writing. It was during my first job out of university where I learned the craft of blending words and data into a story that made sense for its audience. I've since worked in-house, at agencies, on contract, and remotely.


I focus on editing nonfiction and marketing materials, across all forms of media, for writers and small businesses.


When I'm not playing with words or fighting with grammar, I'm getting lost on the trails and planning my next adventure. I've run nearly four dozen marathons (or farther!) on all seven continents, and I enjoy experiencing new cultures.
