JD Proofreading





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


Skilled proofreader and editor 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. Competencies include proofreading, line editing, and copy editing.

My professional experience includes over five years of academic editing, medical editing, and writing for Media Studios. I hold a bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary studies from the California Institute of Integral Studies, where my concentrations included research, writing, global studies, and social justice. I also hold an associate's degree in social science, with concentrations in psychology, education, and the humanities.

My studies and professional experiences reflect both a broad scope and a 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.
