About Me

I’m a bookworm, freelance editor and designer, and former archivist. After earning a BA in English from Evangel University and attending the Denver Publishing Institute, I moved to New York City in 2012 for NYU's MS in Publishing. In my classes, I honed my skills in editing, developed an interest in marketing and design, and learned to keep pace with changes in the industry.

For the past seven years, I’ve edited papers and dissertations for graduate students, each year managing several major projects, a steady stream of papers, and thousands of editorial corrections. I help students and other clients structure their projects, communicate to their readers, and perfect their style guide formatting.

When I’m not reading, you can find me playing the clarinet in a local orchestra, working on a design in Photoshop, or volunteering with the Evangel University Auxiliary.

She had the perfect career in mind . . . one that was guaranteed to lead her to Manhattan one day—editor. All she had to do was get terrific grades, go to a top-notch school, and learn everything there was to know about books.
