Team Member Profile

Introduction

I am a full-time freelance editor with over eighteen years in the field and extensive experience in fiction, nonfiction, and academic editing. My editing career began in the mid-aughts while living abroad as an English teacher in Japan, and I gained an incredibly broad range of experience while providing editing services to individuals and translation companies. During those years, I discovered a deep passion for editing that I turned into a successful career after returning to the US in 2010.

Since then, I’ve had the honor of working with writers across a wide range of genres and at many different stages in their careers, from first-time authors who are new to the editing process to multi-published bestselling novelists who have been in the business for decades. I’ve worked on academic projects from K–6 picture books to graduate theses to higher education textbooks. And I’ve worked with nonfiction ranging from memoirs to self-help to informational books on new technology.

While not a storyteller myself, I have been a voracious reader my entire life, and the two things I love most in this world are good stories and learning new information. With this passion as my driving force, I found my true calling in helping authors refine their stories and their prose so they can put their best foot forward on the path to touching the minds and hearts of readers.
