Hello! I’m a freelance editor and technical proofreader based in Portland, Oregon. I’ve been working with writers for seven years in various forms, from tutoring student writers to editing book manuscripts. With a background in both the creative and commercial fields, I’ve worked with large book editing projects as well as with smaller projects, ranging from web and social media copy to academic papers and marketing/advertising materials.
I have a Master of Science in Book Publishing from Portland State University, where I focused my studies in book editing and project management. While pursuing my degree, I also worked with Ooligan Press and performed extensive editorial projects for four of their titles, including two literary fiction novels and two YA novels, as well as proofreading projects for two other titles.
I enjoy collaborating with storytellers to create beautiful stories, and I ensure that each editing project I tackle is thoughtfully considered and carefully completed. My goal is to help every writer I work with grow and develop their piece so that it meets both their vision and its full potential.
