I’m a professional freelance editor living in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. I received formal training in editing at the University of Washington and am a graduate of their rigorous Certificate in Editing program. I'm also a member of the Northwest Editors Guild.
My editing style is to learn about you, my author, and support you in your project goals. I ask lots of questions about you as a person, your project, and what it is you want from me. I do not pass judgement or criticize. I respect my clients as writers. I encourage you and offer praise for your strengths. I want you to feel excited about my edits because they are only there to make your work shine. It is not my job to change your voice, but to amplify it. I remove what could distract the reader and take them out of a story. I want to help make sure that your chosen audience reads your story until the very end.
