JD Proofreading





Nonfiction, Creative Nonfiction, Academic, Op-Ed, Journalistic


You have something important to say to the world, and you want to make sure your message gets through. Whether you're looking for polish and proofreading or more intensive line and copyediting, I'm here to help you craft a flawless final draft.

I am available to review a variety of nonfiction/creative nonfiction materials. Topic specialisms include social, cultural, and global issues; history; politics; psychology and self-help; spirituality; and other areas within the social sciences and humanities. Subgenres include memoir, biography, cultural criticism, historical nonfiction, self-help, and more.

My experience includes over five years of academic editing, medical editing, and writing for Media Studios. I hold a B.A. in interdisciplinary studies from the California Institute of Integral Studies, where my concentrations included research, writing, global studies, and social justice. I also completed a two-year degree in social science, with concentrations in psychology, education, and the humanities.

My studies and professional experiences reflect both breadth of scope and depth of research and inquiry that have been invaluable in my work as an editor, and I continue to invest in education and professional development in order to best serve the authors, scholars, and publishers with whom I collaborate.
