This is one of the published works I’ve enjoyed editing the most.I have experience with a variety of content, but it’s rare when a work inspires me personally as did A User’s Guide to the Old Testament.
From three-ring binder and audio messages of each lesson to 7.44 x 9.68 book format. Client discovery, research, and collaboration helped me create a user friendly text that concisely conveys significant points of SGC’s church life and doctrine.
Enjoyed this project through substantive and copy-edits for the first edition of both the Student Text and TE. Literary Lessons from the Lord of the Rings is an amazing curriculum and possibly one of my favorite editing experiences.
This line edit was truly a blessing; beyond the editing work I love, the subject of the dissertation is the writer of a worship song that had impacted me greatly in the years just prior to receiving the project.
SafeSite - content migration, code cleanup, writing meta descriptions, and basic proofreading,
Assisted with decisions about website repair. Designed and coded layout of content for MWAPR’s Featured Clients Page. Repaired column structures, added content where fields were buried in the CSS.
I've appreciated proofing The Journal each time the author has updated it.
I copy-edited this devotional in conjunction with it's companion journal; Seeking God Daily is a work I greatly enjoyed delving into.
Standard copyedit prior to the final content correction.
A proven researcher, writer, and editor, I strive to improve your image and communications with integrity, allowing employers and coworkers - or writers as the case may be - to do what they do best.
Honestly, I was born an editor, and it's a joy to do work I love.
Whether it's a website, a novel, or a dissertation, I love digging into the details, improving clarity and accessibility, and simply making it better.
Occasionally that means a quick proofread; other times it means a substantive edit or cleaning up code that's hindering the look of a website, and sometimes it means researching and copy writing.
Whatever the venue or the content, I will do my best for you.
I work remotely from the Triangle Area, NC.
