I have more than 10 years' experience in academia and over three years professional editing experience. I value clear and concise writing and my goal is to bring out the best in your writing and help you achieve your academic and career goals.

I edit and format academic and scholarly non-fiction pieces. This includes: PhD theses, PhD proposals, journal articles, master's dissertations, and white papers. I am skilled in the APA 6th edition style guide and I have experience following The Chicago Manual of Style, Harvard style, and journal and university style guidelines. I provide substantive editing, copy editing, proofreading, and formatting services, as well as consultations.

I earned my PhD from the University of Glasgow, Scotland from the Department of Central and East European Studies. I have a background in the social sciences and experience conducting qualitative research. I am proficient in American, British, and Canadian English.
