Lisa Haviland

Editor, Fact-Checker & Proofreader


Los Angeles, California



Academia, Business, Finance, Marketing & News


I'm an editor, fact-checker and proofreader who is currently seeking new clients and projects. I've edited a variety of publications, and am adept at clarifying and streamlining copy in the realms of academia, business and management, finance, marketing and news.

Previous long-term clients have included business-to-business magazines, a daily news website, professors of African American studies, applied behavioral science, engineering and sociology submitting their own work and/or overseeing academic journal production, educational publishers such as Barron's, and the marketing-communications division of an investment management firm.

I’m experienced with the AP, APA and Chicago style guides, and have compiled numerous in-house style guides for clients to maintain consistency and quality across platforms.
