Work history

Freelance Copyeditor and Proofreader
You have a powerful message to convey. Don’t let that message get convoluted with accidental grammar, spelling, punctuation, or clarity mistakes. Get back to what's important to you, let us handle the little details.
Editor
Opal Publishing connects authors and writers to experts in the field and to readers. I copyedit each article submission and proofread the final layout before publishing.
Great News Media
Sales Manager, Part-time Editor
At Great News Media, I progressed from Business Development Associate to Sales Manager within two years for my dedication to the company and ability to learn quickly. I was also the editor for one of their many magazines, Canmore Connection.
