As one of the first Editors Guild members, I have devoted my career to the craft of copyediting and proofreading. I help writers—from best-selling to indie authors—create clear, concise, consistent content, all with a dash of flair. My background in book promotions, public relations, marketing, print buying, and in-house project management informs my collaborative relationships with valued clients, which have included AAA (Automobile Association of America) Washington, Alaska Beyond Magazine (Paradigm Communications), Alaska Northwest Books, Benaroya Research Institute, Girl Friday Productions, Fodor's Travel Publications, Mountaineers Books, Nonprofit Works, Sasquatch Books, Swedish Medical Center, Virginia Mason Medical Center, and YouthCare. I received a degree in Communication/Journalism from Seattle Pacific University and a Certificate in Editing from the University of Washington. I've completed additional coursework in social media editing, e-publishing, and writing for the web.
