Down Your Alley Editing

Academic, fiction, short-form, digital content


Writing is a messy process, so my job as your copyeditor/proofreader is to help you clean that mess up and present your message to the world with confidence. If that book you’ve written is the culmination of years of work, you’re going to want to make sure it says exactly what you want it to say—no chances for miscommunication or embarrassing typos. If you write a company newsletter, let’s work together to be sure that your drive and vision for your company comes through clearly in the columns you and other contributors write.

I’m not picky about the medium you use for your content—book, short ebook feature, newsletter, blog series, and anything else between—I work with whatever you bring me. I AM picky about my work, though, so you can be sure that I will give you my best. My highest goal is your greatest success.

I've worked with fiction, non-fiction, and medical texts, and have experience with Chicago, MLA, APA, AP, and Turabian styles. I completed my Masters of Science degree in Publishing from Pace University in 2016 and have 7 years of copyediting experience.
