About me: Prior to becoming a full-time editor and proofreader I enjoyed roles in both a local authority and in higher education as an equality and diversity professional, a senior policy officer, a librarian and an in-house proofreader. As part of this work I wrote, edited and proofread reports, policies, presentations, equality charter submissions and countless other documents.
My professional experience and my editorial training have given me an understanding of the needs of businesses, organisations and students. I ensure documents are well-written, consistent and easy to understand.
I am an intermediate member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and have trained with the CIEP, the Publishing Training Centre and the Proofreading Academy. I also have an MSc in Social Research, an MSc in Information Science and a Certificate in Management Studies.
