    *CURRENTLY IN CANADIAN PACIFIC TIME ZONE* Developmental & Academic Editor/Writer My editorial background offers extensive experience in encouraging clients to find their authentic voice. In addition to two published novels and academic editing for Tel Aviv and Haifa universities—criminology, cybersecurity, psychology—I enjoy the creative pursuits of all writing forms, emphasizing combining media ecology with uniquely subjective and relevant storytelling. My goal is to reach a thorough understanding and deep knowledge of writing that's applicable to small and large forums. I perceive creativity and the mutually dependent relationship between human and spirit as vehicles for your voice. When writing, editing, or managing content, I take attentive care to apply my perception to its expression. This care transforms the material to meet the needs and expectations of your readership. From academia to spirituality, we work together to find your style and solidify publication. Would love to connect and give your content creation the attention it deserves! I look forward to hearing from you :)

    My work as an academic editor and coach satisfies two kinds of client: 1. PhD and Master's degree students who need support in completing their thesis or dissertation; 2. Researchers who need assistance in preparing their journal articles and reports for publication. Although there are many similarities in the work, since both require a strong knowledge of academic writing, understanding of scholarly standards, and commitment to excellence and rigor, there are some differences as outlined below. 1. PhD or Master's Students Completing a PhD or Master’s degree is difficult enough at the best of times. So, as well as editing manuscripts to meet the university's expectations, I also specialize in working with graduate students who have run into extra challenges along the way. I can help if you’re: • Lost and stuck because you don’t understand what your supervisor wants • Unclear about how to improve the structure or narrative flow of your thesis or dissertation • Not sure how to write a Literature Review • Conducting a specialized technical or medical Systematic Literature Review • Confused about why you need a Theoretical Framework (and what is that anyway??) • Wondering what to put into your Introduction, or Conclusion • Mixing up your Methodology with your Findings and Discussion • Recovering from an illness or a personal loss and need help re-engaging with your studies • Still at the proposal stage and trying to understand what's needed for a PhD or Master's If you want specific proofreading and editing services, I can improve and polish your drafts In particular, I can help with: • Academic English, including correct spelling, grammar and punctuation • Using narrative citations as well as parenthetical citations to make the message clearer • Complying with your university’s style guide (e.g., APA7, Chicago, Harvard, etc.) • Structuring your chapters, and ensuring there is narrative flow • Making sure that you’re writing a thesis or dissertation, not a book full of your opinions • Improving your AI-generated drafts to ensure authenticity and a voice that's your own. 2. Researchers If you are an individual researchers, or a member of a research team, and are subject matter experts who need to present their findings to meet the highest standards. I can assist by: • Proofreading to improve the English so that the research is clearly explained • Editing documents to follow academic protocols for format and structure • Applying the style guide preferences (APA, Chicago, AMA, etc.) of particular scholarly journals • Ensuring that reports or proposals are written to suit the readership • Checking that articles and reports have the expected sections and subsections • Verifying that proposals to government agencies are comprehensive. Whether you are a student, a researcher or a faculty member, I invite you to find out more in a free 10-minute introductory Zoom Call. Ask questions, tell me more about your study, find out how I can help. Please check the positive feedback from my many satisfied clients, and then get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
