Academic (Books, Articles, Websites, Dissertations), Business (Financial Statements, Memorandums, MD&A, Proposals)


During the day, I am a full-time financial copy-editor and proofreader for a Big 4 accounting firm, and during the evening I am a freelance academic editor. My background is in the fields of Classics (Greece & Rome) and Ancient History. I transitioned from academia to the editing field in 2009, and I have not looked back since. I edit and proofread texts from a variety of disciplines, including political science, history, philosophy, religion, language, and business. I value the relationships that I cultivate with my clients, and I am happy to say I have learned a great deal from them. In addition to ACES, I am a member of several online editing groups. I am always eager to hone my skills! My latest project is "Farewell to Shulamit: Spatial and Social Diversity in the Song of Songs" by Professor Carsten Wilke of Central European University in Budapest (

I very much look forward to hearing from you.
